PK's Story

PK gives a new REAP enrollee a fist bump after helping him sign up for assistance at a local employment agency.

After serving nearly 30 years in state prison, PK came to REAP in April 2016

At the time of his release, he had three years remaining on conditional release supervision. He had not completed his eighth-grade education. Sadly, both his parents died while he was in prison.

REAP assisted PK with job readiness training including proper dress, interview skills and obtaining a Florida driver’s license. Since then, PK has worked at Crown Laundry and ECUA. However, he currently works as Director of Transportation for REAP!

PK graduated from REAP in February 2018. Has been our Director of Transportation since 2018 and has received several merit raises based on reliability as well as his dedication to his position at REAP. His split work day starts at 5:00 AM-10:00 AM. Then, he returns to work at 2:00 PM and works until 5:00 PM. PK has proven to be most reliable in a difficult job position! His conditional release is over, and PK is now a completely self-sufficient, crime-free citizen. PK lives with his brother in Pensacola.

PK's success is but one example of the work REAP does every day to assist returning former prisoners to develop a happy, healthy, productive life after prison or jail! Leave us a message on this FB page if we can assist you, your friends or your loved ones.
