At Turning Point Bridges International, a non-profit community for inmates who are transitioning back into the world, he went to work at a company in Pompano Beach, filled out his timesheet, took calls and helped people figure out the logistics of moving their vehicles across the nation.
Finding and holding down a job are prerequisites to participate in the program and stay out of prison. But with two weeks left in his three-and-a-half year sentence, Bellows was sent back.
It was not due to anything he did wrong. The cuts canceled or decreased funding for 67 facilities across the state, including to facilities that help inmates get jobs before release, as well as mental health and substance abuse programs, and even prison chaplain services.
The cuts all come into effect at the beginning of the new fiscal year, on July 1. The contract for Turning Point Bridges International was canceled. Two dozen employees lost their jobs and inmates were sent back to prison, including Bellows. He was in prison for grand theft, trafficking in stolen property, giving false information to a pawn broker and driving with a suspended license.
He says he was trying to help a friend and unknowingly knew the property was stolen. The only part of the budget where they had flexibility was in contractor services, so that was where cuts had to be made. The single remaining employee mowed the lawn and cuts weeds in front of windows strapped with wooden boards to stop any vandalism.
The room that used to house 60 inmates was reduced to the hollow buzz of incandescent lighting, and row after row of empty beds.
And typically those beds are more expensive than the work that we do. Danner owns Pallet King, a shop in Pompano Beach that builds and repairs wooden pallets used for shipping. Four of her employees were sent back to state prison when the contract was canceled, leaving her scrambling to find trained workers who would also be able to withstand the hard work, running power tools under a blistering sun.
For the past 15 years her shop has fielded workers through the program, keeping them on the job even after they get fully released from state supervision.
She struggles to come to terms what led up to this situation. After Bellows was sent back to prison for his last two weeks, he had no idea if his job would be waiting for him when he was back on the street. But his bosses liked him, and things worked out.
Now, he has a steady job, is back in the life of his children, and says that he wants to get his own home and make his mother proud of him.plombier-nemours.com has been helping male and female inmates connect with the outside world since and is ranked #1 among prison pen pal websites.
