Carlos Jones is a founding member of The Mend Project, a mentoring organization in its seminal stages geared towards providing services for post incarcerated and at risk individuals. Carlos Jones made his first efforts at peer mentoring while serving time in various institutions where he mentored and advocated for incarcerated individuals that were on their way back into the community.
As a firm believer that re-entry efforts must first begin inside prisons, Carlos Jones hopes to establish his organization as a guide for at-risk and post incarcerated individuals in their journey through life. Mr. Jones has a unique background in criminal justice that has evolved since his first beginnings in his experiences with incarceration, substance abuse in family settings, addiction, post incarceration transitional programs, and now as an advocate for the pre and post incarcerated population.
From mentoring our youth in their encounters with the justice system to motivating individuals to live sober lifestyles after a life of trauma to advocating for the formerly incarcerated.
Carlos uses his life experiences as well his educational background in hopes to make a small difference in the life of those struggling with addiction, trauma, and adjusting to a new journey after prison.
