ROCKWALL, TX (Feb. 13, 2022) Everyone deserves a second chance and that’s what One Man’s Treasure does; it gives men recently exiting the Texas state prison system a second chance in life. One Man’s Treasure fills a gap to provide every client with essential needs such as clothing and access to vital community resources so he may acquire employment to take care of himself, his family and give back to his DFW community.
“There are too many roadblocks to a successful reentry,” said Jennifer Clubb, Executive Director. “If we can’t assist in the transition for these men, there’s a good chance they will return to criminal life because it’s the only way they can survive. We recognize the transformative, confidence building power of well-fitting clothing. Our Fresh Start Wardrobe greatly reduces the barriers faced by these men reentering their communities and gives them the dignity and confidence to find employment, thus reducing recidivism and ultimately helping build safer communities.”
One Man’s Treasure is proud to be able to host the DFW community and their supporters in-person at their upcoming Make a Difference Gala fundraiser on March 25, 2022, at the historic Hall of State at Fair Park in Dallas. The event focuses on Making a Difference in the lives of the men and communities One Man’s Treasure serves. Attendees will enjoy a delicious plated dinner in the beautifully adorned venue with local celebrity Natalie Woods Stanyer serving as emcee. A silent and live auction, raffle drawing and games will be running throughout the evening. This will be a spectacular spring delight you won’t want to miss that will truly Make a Difference in DFW.
Clubb added, “I’m thrilled to be hosting this event and am proud that we can share with our North Texas community the extraordinary work One Man’s Treasure is doing, breaking down barriers to success and making an extraordinary difference in these men’s lives and their future.”
Despite the challenges of COVID, they served a record 2,053 men in 2021 and look forward to reaching over 2,500 in the coming year with the help of our donors. With the funds from this event, One Man’s Treasure will be able to continue to expand its services throughout North Texas and continue to provide programs that restore dignity and renew families with criminal justice issues.
