Welcome to Unlocked For Life

There is a massive problem in our society with re-entry of former prisoners. Sources vary in their statistics, but the last ones I saw estimated that at least 70% of offenders return to jail or prison within 1-2 years of release.

I, Dan Sanfellipo, was one such repeat inmate. I spent decades in incarceration whether it be jail, prison, or youth detention. In 2011 I made the conscious decision to kick the habit of returning to jail. I made a series of changes to my attitude, my beliefs, and my habits. I changed the path I was on, for good.

My experience drove me to start PATH Smart Associations - PATH standing for Personal Awareness Training Helps - and now I have an amazing team behind me; together we are creating Unlocked For Life, our jail rehabilitation program. With this program, I will share the processes and methods I used to turn my life around, and help others like me break the habit of returning to jail.

Our goal is to provide on-line and face-to-face coaching, education, support, and guidance for behavior modification, self-discovery, and personal development that will reduce an offender’s isolation and increase their success potential.

Unlocked For Life will have a Resource Center here in Orange County, where past offenders can come to find safe haven and use as a base from which to build their home, relationships, employment, in all a new life, with help from me and a host of volunteers.

Whether you are interested as a participant, an investor, a volunteer, or a donor, I would sincerely like to say: Welcome On Board!
