Pain that Produces Purpose (P3)

A resource to assist the release of incarcerated individuals across the nation, Pain that Produces Purpose will empower returning citizens to thrive as they are taught by the stories of those who have already successfully reintegrated back into society after confinement. It will also be a vehicle to break the stigma currently associated with the formerly incarcerated, helping employers and communities to enthusiastically welcome their return. A TACKLE THE SHACKLES Collector’s Edition will be used at fundraising events and autographed by the NFL TTS Ambassadors.

"Bringing Life back into the Community"

We envision, pray, and believe in a future in which those who have been incarcerated can encounter the grace and love of Christ, develop a passionate relationship with Him, and be set free spiritually as well as physically. We coach and prepare "Returning Citizens" to become leaders of their families, communities, and churches once they are released back into the community.
