"Breaking the Cycle"
Featuring: Tonier Cain
For two decades, Tonier Cain hustled on the streets of Annapolis, racking up 83 arrests along the way. Rapes, beatings, and drugs were a routine part of life; home was underneath the College Creek bridge or inside the locked cage of the Jennifer Road Detention Center and the Maryland Correctional Institute in Jessup.
In 2004, pregnant and incarcerated for violation of parole, she was provided the opportunity to go to a community trauma, mental health and addictions program. Fast forward eleven years and today she is not only a homeowner and a mother, she is a national advocate and speaker for Trauma Informed Care. She works with Congress, programs in all 50 states, and internationally.
Come hear how she made this incredible transformation in her life and what we can do as a community to help others make similar strides.
