Richard Miles is the Founder of Miles of Freedom. He has walked the walk of the ex-offender. He has felt the burden of the label “ex-offender”, and for those reasons, creating this organization became his driving force. By founding Miles of Freedom, his dream became a reality to help others reach their promise and protect them against recidivism. The organization is now reaching out to help others come home, and in fact, tell them “welcome home.” Most importantly, it knows that housing, employment, and the opportunity to regain dignity and humanity are crucial to rebuilding lives. Miles gave his thanks saying, “The Miles of Freedom Family extends a gracious Thank you for your unwavering support.” “And to everyone that came out, donated, and participated in the silent auction we are forever indebted to you for your support.”
