Texas Bar Foundation awarded $7,000 to ME3LJ Center for the H.O.P.E. For Success program. H.O.P.E. For Success provides an educational program for justice involved participants being released back to Travis and Bexar counties that are experiencing “real” issues of successful re-acclimation.

ME3LJ Center, Minorities for Equality in Economy, was founded in 2004. Located in Austin, Texas, the Center’s core mission is to “provide resources and opportunities for at-risk youth and formerly incarcerated persons“.

H.O.P.E. is a program for at-risk youth, formerly incarcerated individuals, and families affected by the penal system to provide services and training to prevent rearrests and re-incarceration.

ME3LJ offers a variety of programs, including Court Mandated Education Courses, HOPE (Helping Other People Excel), FOR REAL (Forever Omitting Recidivism, Restructuring, Educating & Activating Life), Employment for Me, Counseling and Education.

Texas Bar Foundation is proud to support ME3LJ Center.
