20 to Life: Prisoners Find a Purpose at Sing Sing

Odyssey Networks spends the day with a dozen inmates trying to turn their lives around at Sing Sing Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison in Ossining, N.Y. Through a program offered at the facility by New York Theological Seminary, select inmates eventually obtain a master's degree and, in their words, a leg up on transitioning to life outside of prison.

I am starting a prison ministry at my church. Saint Paul Baptist Church, Passaic Nj. To do what the bible says about visiting prisons and teach the Word of God.

They been through the fire. Therefore, change is evident and possible. This is why 'The LPS. GROUP, INC. Was created 4 gentlemen/ and women such as these who need a base or place to continue their evolving growth. GREEN THINKING is the new paradigm thinking behavior for any individual who is going through the process of RECYCLING there former way of thinking. Allow these men and women to come home and be apart of the solution as oppose to being apart of the problem from a ECOLOGICAL perspective. They can and will be examples to a NEW WAY of thinking for those who are fortunate to return to society. CHANGE YOUR MIND-SET, U CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

This is such a positive program for turning these men's lives around. It can't help but make a difference for society when they are released from prison and it probably helps them while they're still in prison. More programs like this need to be set up in prisons all over our country. They would eventually pay for themselves by lowering the number who end up back in prison.
