Dr. Madeline McClenney-Sadler says she leads a staff of 10 part-timers with a total annual budget of about $150,000.
In a community of billion-dollar budgets, McClenney-Sadler’s Exodus Foundation appears to be hobbled by the dearth of support for helping the once-incarcerated to succeed on a path of reentry into society.
McClenney-Sadler’s presentation was not about budgets. It was a call for volunteers and, more broadly, redesigning how society sets its wayward members on the right path. The talk was of redemptive justice, in collaboration with crime victims.
The Q&A that followed the presentation was peppered with offers from Forum participants involved in other community organizations to collaborate in the work.
