Here's one for you. How many remember Walla Walla's Lifers With Hope group? Well, there's a rumor floating around they might try to get back in business. I'm sure there are some of you that remember that this organization put 600 inmates, all lifers, outside the walls to work. They had great success in many of their endeavors. Could it be that they are interested in trying to get guys out of here after they have completed their 13.4 mandatory? It is a real bummer to keep hearing "We'll see you again in two years" from the Board. One of the Lifers With Hope program goals is to see that those lifers who have completed their mandatory sentence, in essence the 20 years they had been sentenced to by the court, make a smooth transition back into society. Their sole purpose in creating and developing this concept is to place those long-term lifers back into society with a minimum amount of stress and conflict. This transitional phase consists of lifers living, working studying and participating in various therapeutic programs once they are released. Anyone that is interested or may have some input on this subject, please write to Warren Halverson #024618 or Dawud H. Malik #622989, P.O. Box 777, Monroe, WA 98272.
