Hello, my name is Rev. Carl T. Phipps, Sr, and I am the Executive Director of H.O.P.E. for Ex-Offenders, Inc. I along with our Board Members, Staff and Professional Partners are seeking to reduce the curse of recidivism in our communities through prayer, practical assistance and guidance for the ex-offender. Our mission is to see the father be the provider and protector of the family; the mother to be the teacher and healing balm in the mist of the family and the adolescent to become the gift that was promised to the community and to the nation. I hope you will join us in restoring one life/family at a time with the message of H.O.P.E.
