Why we do what we do
Cheri Garcia has a passion for working with convicted felons and people recovering from substance use disorders. After spending several years working to help inmates become entrepreneurs, she discovered a need to assist those in transition from inside the prison walls to society. Freedom is just the beginning and often times convicted felons feel overwhelmed and discouraged while trying to find their place in the free world. At Cornbread Hustle, we help the lost get found through teaching entrepreneurship and life skills for the improvement of society. We are a for-profit because we want our participants to know that this is a business, not a charity. We want to prove that we truly believe in our participants by investing time and money into their ambitions.
