Over twenty years ago, Rev. Michelle Simmons was fresh in her sobriety and new in her re-entry journey. Today, she leads the top re-entry program for women in Philadelphia.
While stitching her life together, she received a message from God to open up a transitional housing program for formerly incarcerated women. Leaning on her church family and many years of sacrifice later, Rev. Michelle is one of the most respected re-entry professionals in Philadelphia with her organization, Why Not Prosper. In her conversation
with Dr. Rolanda Spencer, she detailed how she continues to carry out her vision.
