Red face How can I help to improve things?

I am new to this site and would like some help. I recently had one of my loved ones in the county jail waiting to be sentenced. During his stay there I learned a lot about the system it was my first experience with it. I was shocked by the over crowding and the treatement the men received. Although they were paying consequences for their actions it did not mean that they be treated like slaughter house animals. The other concern I had was the lack of knowledge the loved ones had on the outside. I had to learn on my own what to do and how to do it (phone calls, money etc) While I was at the jail it was to no surprise that everyone else that had a loved one there was in the same perdicament, I was in California and had to come to Tennessee which made it harder to take care of business for my loved one. I recently sold my business and am now a resident of Tennessee, there is a lot of need and no one helping because nobody knows what to do. To make a long story short, by the grace of God and my determination and hard work his case was dismissed.

My question is what can I do to help them and their family members? I was thinking about starting some sort of business in this area and was wanting some feed back about that.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
Joyce Reynolds aka Tennessee Mama
