St. Leonard’s Ministries, located on the west side of Chicago, provides housing, education, training, and job placement services for formerly incarcerated men and women. Over the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to volunteer my time as a high school teacher and graduation photographer for their adult high school program. The unbridled joy that springs forth at the graduation ceremonies is absolutely incredible and it consistently renews my dedication to the cause.
