Meet Quintin

We take dreams seriously at Joseph House. As Joe has taught us for those coming out of prison, to dream is to hope and to hope is to live the good life. We have also learned that dreams come true more easily when we share in life together. A life together where we share responsibilities, we share in laughter and meals, we share our home with friends and strangers. We want to introduce our new House Manager, Quintin Storey, and let you hear from him.

In his words

Hi, I’m Quintin, The House Manager here at the Joseph House. I am currently enrolled at TCC in the Paralegal Studies Program. I plan to earn an AS Degree in the program. My participation in this mission is a very special part of my daily life because I was once released from incarceration. Just as the 1st station of the cross, when Jesus was condemned, I somehow feel that station relevant to my struggles of re-entry from incarceration.

The obstacles, struggles, and everything which was stacked against me almost seemed to be unreal – another aspect of condemnation. I remember those faithful saints that were there to guide me through that tough time of transition. Post-release is a very critical point for one returning into free society from prison. Here at the Joseph House, we take a frontline, hands-on approach to getting the necessary resources organized so that we may assist those in most need.

The Impact of Joseph House

Quintin is a student at Tallahassee Community College pursuing Paralegal Studies as he hopes to give back to the community by serving juveniles that are most vulnerable to incarceration. Quintin’s presence at the house not only ensures the safety of our residents but also assists us in further forming our mission as someone who was formerly incarcerated.

Our hope is to create a social climate where education is valued and the opportunity to further one’s intellectual gifts is increased. Studies show time and time again that when those that are incarcerated or formerly incarcerated are exposed to postsecondary education their chances of returning to prison dramatically decreases.

The art of accompaniment

Volunteer

Some may volunteer by accompanying our residents through challenging tasks. 

Others may wish to volunteer by assisting helping us around the house, creating a sense of belonging for all of us.

Finally, others may simply want to join us on occasion at our community events to learn more.

Responding to Material Needs

Donate

There are very real costs to create a home for those hoping to re-enter society after incarceration. 

Joseph House, through the generosity of our donors, has been able to take concrete steps towards justice by restoring the dignity of those leaving the prison systems.

Sharing the Good News

Share

In less than one year our ministry has grown in leaps and bounds, impacting the lives of many for one simple reason: people are sharing the good news. 

We encourage you to share Joseph House with your family, your friends, your community, inviting them to join us as we join those re-entering society after prison.
