Our own Ms. Carol Ramsey-Lewis, who has been in recovery for 23 years from opioid addiction, received a Pardon from the Governor of Pennsylvania on May 24, 2016! She received help from the Duquesne Law Clinic to become their first of hopefully many more people with non-violent and misdemeanor crimes that are decades old to be pardoned. She started as a volunteer with Message Carriers in 2003 and has been on our Board of Directors for the past 3 years. Ms. Ramsey-Lewis is also a Certified Recovery Specialist and has been employed with Pennsylvania Organization for Women in Early Recovery (POWER). Many would say that people “Can and Do Recover” if given the help they need!
