Nonprofit For Dignity visits Nebraska prisons hoping to inspire inmates

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- Nonprofit For Dignity visited two Nebraska prisons aiming to inspire incarcerated women.

For Dignity’s Director Kelly Masters says an opportunity to speak at prisons came in 2018 and she’s been providing resources and mentorship since.

Masters visited both the Nebraska State Penitentiary and the Nebraska Correctional Center for Women on Monday and Tuesday.

She said the stories of inspiration continue to pour in from women.

“One of the girls actually said ‘I know what I want to do now because as we spoke to her,’ it gave her that hope,” Masters said. “And that inspiration that she wants to go out and do similar work and help other women who are doing, who are caught in the same system.”

Masters believes in breaking the cycle of trauma and abuse alongside providing resources that will allow them to stay inspired.

“When we go in and we speak it’s not just to speak,” she said. “It’s to go in and empower them with the tools to break through and break free from their limiting mindsets to break free from cycles of defeat, and to bring them that message of hope that they’re not alone.”
