Our President and founder, Lee Steven Chapelle, learned his lessons in life the hard way. As a wayward youth, he first found himself behind bars at the age of sixteen. Much of his young adult life was spent incarcerated. He has firsthand experience with the following penitentiaries:
Struggling to find meaning after receiving an extended sentence, Lee started advocacy work for inmates from within the system, and served numerous years in the various roles of Inmate Committee Chairman (elected position), Unit Representative (elected position), Peer Counselor and Grievance Coordinator.
Lee discovered that he had a skill for conflict resolution, and was frequently called upon by both inmates and staff to negotiate peaceful resolutions to tricky situations. He possesses a unique skill set that allowed him to work within the system, while at the same time maintaining the respect of his peers.
Throughout his years of advocacy work, Lee has had extensive dealings with prison administrators and staff alike. He is a relentless lobbyist for inmate/human rights, and understands the intricacies of the system in ways that allow him to advocate efficiently and effectively.
He has supported hundreds of federal inmates navigate their way successfully through the system, providing assistance with rights information and protection, parole applications and parole hearing preparation. Even/especially prior to entering the system, there are many things individuals can do to ease the transition to incarceration.
Lee brings a compassionate, mindful approach to his work. His reflective and empowering style of communication fosters a sense of trust and security, allowing people working with him to gain the information and inner resources necessary to do their time effectively.
Lee works actively with clients to promote addressing the issues that led to their charges and/or incarceration so that they are not simply “doing time” but rather using their time productively to address the issues that led to their incarceration. This approach lays the foundation to early release, and just as importantly, staying out.
