Now, McGreevey works with women — whom he refers to as “my ladies” — in a pilot program at the jail that aims to teach life skills and keep inmates from things that will land them back in jail. There’s a focus on staying off drugs, finding a job and improving mental health. McGreevey follows the 12-step program with the women to help them “find and embrace a higher power,” according to the AP.
McGreevey has been working with Integrity House on the program for the past seven months.
“Every day is an incredible blessing,” McGreevey said. “I learn so much more from these women than I can give them – their honesty, courage and strength. It’s a very different place than politics.”
