After nearly a decade since it was first proposed, Valor Ridge, a group home campus for former inmates, has opened in Davidson County, WPLN reports. The community was conceived by Men of Valor, a faith-based ministry that aims to reduce recidivism, and is funded in part by private prison operator CoreCivic. Former prisoners “need an opportunity to live in our community and be productive citizens,” said Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall, a supporter of the project. The campus will initially house up to 60 men, with units for 30 more in the works.
