Editors Note -
We have had several people ask us the last few months, who we are, and why are we offering this web site.  To make a long story short, my name is Don Hawkins and I own a business called Other Peoples Properties, LLC of which we offer another web site that helps investors buy and sell their investment properties.  I am also a General Contractor.  I was a H.O.P.E. Team Member for several years of which I left on the 8th of March of this year and I do not have any further affiliation of any kind.  For the last two plus years, I have been part of a Bible study group Hands of Hope Ministries, Inc. at the Plainfield Correctional Facility (PCF), and I have been one of Judy Helms' mentors since just after the Plainfield ReEntry Educational Facility (PREF) opened.  After Ms. Boyd asked me to sit in for her at one of the Plainfield Community Advisory Board Meetings, Superintendent Mike Lloyd asked me to serve on the Community Advisory Board as an individual, I accepted, and the rest, as they say is history.  Except that, last month Khadijah Muhammad the new Director of ReEntry, asked me to serve on Mayor Ballard's new Task Force for ReEntry of which I am looking forward to working with her, and Olgen Williams, the new Deputy Mayor.  Why we are offering this web site, is outlined on the front of our web site (Our Problem - Our Solution).  Plus, I am an ExOffender.
