Fresh Start Banquet On Friday

A first-ever banquet will help reduce recidivism and homelessness in Wayne County.

Pastor Marvin Alexander is the founder of the Mephibosheth Project and he’s a member of Wayne County Reentry Council.

He appeared on 730 and 105.7 WFMC to talk about the banquet.

Alexander says the next step for the groups is to purchase a few pieces of property at the old Cherry Hospital campus.

That will allow for curriculum, training spaces and transitional housing for those that were recently released from incarceration
