Our Story

Personal Experience
Through George’s personal experience with incarceration and the many obstacles he faced upon returning to society God led him to start a ministry entitled “King In You” in 2007 where he encouraged and challenged people from all walks of life to rise above their past and to embrace their future in Jesus Christ. Through his written books, speaking engagements and ultimately the weekly classes that he teaches as a Chaplain at the Lake County Jail, he has reached many.
 
Although George was making an impact, he knew there was greater work to be done. He needed to be proximate and to touch those lives that needed it most up close and personal. He was inspired to incorporate others into the ministry of reentry and to leave a “legacy” beyond himself by forming a faith-based nonprofit.
 
Legacy Reentry Foundation NFP was founded in 2015 by George and ReGina Moore, for the purpose of helping returning citizens, and anyone in need of a another chance, reintegrate back into society by providing relevant resources through our four pillars: education, employment, empowerment and evangelism. The vision of Legacy is to provide “2nd chance” opportunities. Our purpose is to empower others. We want those that we serve to eventually serve their families, their communities and the generation to come by becoming the very resource that they once needed.
