Jamie founded this organization to reshape the minds of society regarding incarceration and incarcerated individuals. REshape is an acronym for Re-Sources, Re-Habilitate, Re-Act, Re-Prieve, and Re-Entry. The goal is to develop a supportive structure that empowers participants to integrate into society: turning bars into ladders.
