Roca Disrupts the Cycle of Incarceration Through Mentoring

Founded in 1989, Roca is a non-profit organization that aims to disrupt the cycle of incarceration and poverty though a 24 month mentoring program. The Springfield, MA chapter helps formerly incarcerated young adults acquire their GED, gain employment, keep out of trouble, and focus on their goals for the future.  Connecting Point Producer Alejandro Cameron brings us the success story of one Roca mentee who was able to overcome his issues and break the ongoing cycle of being in and out of incarceration.
