As part of our StoryCorps series on criminal justice, we bring you a story about re-adjusting to life on the outside.

Kenneth Dilosa, Tyronne Smith, and Ben Smith helped found a reentry organization called "The First 72+". Located in the shadow of the new jail, it was created by formerly incarcerated people to help others transition out of prison and build for the future. Their motto is: "us helping us".

This piece was produced by Eve Abrams, in partnership with The Justice Project, a StoryCorps initiative to preserve and amplify the stories of people affected by incarceration across the U.S. Learn more at StoryCorps.org.
