Please Know...

As I come to know these fine people, they share with me more of their personal and sensitive stories. Their collective story is what I am trying to share with you as my way of breaking the stereotypical beliefs that exist. "Blog names" have occasionally been given to me by the person whose story I am telling. Names are never their actual names and wherever I can do so, I might use the opposite pronoun (his/her, etc.) just to help increase their privacy.

Changes MUST be made ASAP so as to save the lives of human beings who are losing the battle in the addiction/homeless phase of Substance Use Disorder.  To the extent that the Philadelphia Jail system plays a part in these unacceptable losses, this page is focused.

The mission of the Philadelphia Jail System is as follows as described in the Philadelphia Jail Inmate Handbook:
