FOXO is a nonprofit organization created for ex-offenders by ex-offenders and are dedicated to “breaking the cycle” by using P.E.A.C.E (proper education always corrects errors). FOXO is dedicated to empowering and advocating for ex-offenders, for we understand the therapeutic value of an x-offender helping a newly released offender is without parallel.
“In august 2006 I was introduced to Bro. Bey. I found out that Brother Bey and I had a lot in common. After we talked he asked me to come to the Re-thinking & Reshaping, Re-Entry Conference at Sojourner Douglass College. The conference was insightful….after the conference, I started networking with the people that I met that day and things have started changing in my life. It is still a process and “it is not an easy process” -Antoine Redditt
With the respect and the admiration that Antione received from F.O.X.O, he was able to develop and start his own rehab and renovation business that he calls “Reflective Images” where it says “Our worth is a reflection of our Image”.
“I redialed the number and this man answered. I said, “Could you tell me about FOXO” and he said “Who are you?” I told him about myself and my situation. Then he told me about F.O.X.O and that he could not give me a job, but that he would help. I felt beside myself because this stranger who had never met me did not see what was on my background and acted as if he didn’t care what that piece of paper had to say about my past. All he said was “I will help you”. Those words meant and mean so much to me; the first person to say I will, I can help you” – Cheryl Crosby
With the help of F.O.X.O, Ms. Crosby has been placed into a position where she can help and assist other women who are experiencing parallel as well as perpendicular struggles that hinder them from modifying their psychological thought patterns that develop behavior malnourishments that manifests into glimpses of their destiny. To clarify, all behavior is learned behavior; people learn what they live and reciprocally live what they learn.
“From F.O.X.O, I am learning to live life and how to love myself in a healthy manner &…I know with the help of GOD, the help of people and programs he has placced in my life such as F.O.X.O, to help me learn how to live, my life has changed considerably for the better.” -Connie Smothers.
“The more positive associations I have like F.O.X.O., and the more encouragement I receive from GOD’s angels like Brother Bey, I will be able to secure the financial aid for my children. Thank you Brother Bey, thank you for the nudging, confidence and belief in my family.”
