"Who would of thought after losing 9 years of your life at a early age of 18 to becoming a business owner by 32 still... thank you for all your help of making this dream come true.. it's only right i name my company Dream Electric LLC


"The Reentry program meant everything to me.  I went through my prison sentence without a plan at all but to get out and live life. Up until the day I transferred to Georgetown County, I was dodging trouble.  And even after arriving there I was working at the airport not wanting more.  It wasn't until I joined the program for heating and air that I really got to see what the program had to offer.

My life was slowly starting to change by the day I was in the program.  I got my work key card and kept going until I got it to a platinum level.  I got all my heating and air conditioning certifications.  Then the most important one of all my wonderful teacher convinces me to take up electrical work and studies.  Of course I was reluctant to mess with something so dangerous but I gave in when thinking of the possibilities this trade could bring.  So I studied harder than I ever had and with the help of Donnie Cummings  my mentor and friend I learned so much.  The program has so much more to offer than just what I mentioned economic skills that which help you cope after live after incarceration.  I'm more than grateful for all the program has taught me and helped me through.  The program is much more than a school, it's a place to help growth within oneself, to build character most of all pull out your full potential.  To help you understand that where your at in life is not your final step there's more for you out there your past definitely does not determine your future."

"The program...is unbelievable."

I was incarcerated...

"Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. My apologies I couldn't make it (work, work, work). The program that is set up at the Georgetown Detention Center is still unbelievable! And couldn't be directed by no one other than Sheriff Lane Cribb and Mrs. Debbie Barr. My experience there was remarkable. I was incarcerated from February 4, 2008 until July 1, 2016. Honestly, things were miserable and the days were long until August 16, 2012. That's the day my life changed for the better and I didn't realize it yet. I heard about the Reentry Program in prison from other gentlemen. I was ready for a change and curious. So, I applied for the county facility. A few weeks later, the county accepted me and I was transferred there. Once I arrived to Georgetown Detention Center, I was classified and work detail with facility services. From that point, I watched how happy and motivate the group of men were. They worked during the day and attended school at night. Before guys would be release they had HVAC certificate, driver license or permit. I really wanted a change so I got in the Reentry Program. My time there was marvelous, all the hard work and long days really paid off. Mrs. Barr worked with me day in and out. I learned the electric trade under Mr. Donny Cumming a great individual. When I was released, I left the program with my driver license, HVAC certification, my electrical journeymen certificate, a job! And a whole different outlook on life, that program and the people there are something very special. The sheriff and Mrs. Barr have a big heart and soft spot with it comes to the Reentry Program. And not just the people in the program but anyone who really deserves better for themselves. I’m honestly glad I had the opportunity to travel in that direction. What a life changer. The Reentry Program is really a success and needs more people like Mrs. Barr to stand behind it."
