Fred Smith, our Director of Program Development, recently received the Innovations in Public Safety Partnership Award from the Massachusetts Department of Correction at their 2013 Beyond Excellence Awards banquet. This well-deserved honor was given in recognition of Fred’s long-standing commitment to helping men and women lead successful, productive lives after incarceration.
During his 10 years as Director of the Sullivan Family Moving Ahead Program (MAP), Fred developed MAP’s innovative approach and worked closely with prisons across the state. His guidance and vision also helped the program earn national recognition as a model for people who have experienced incarceration, homelessness, and/or addiction.
Today, Fred continues to help guests individually, and through CarryON, which provides employment for people who have struggled to find opportunities elsewhere.
