If you end your day with aching feet, it’s time to choose a Drew Shoe. Imagine your feet soothed by layers of soft, lightweight comfort, with physician- prescribed features that provide daily therapy for tired, aching feet. For foot pain, nothing ROSE pampers you like a Drew. Continued from previous page “ It reminds you you’re not doing your time alone. It’s someone to lean on, figuratively,” said Richard. Loewen, who talks about time he spends with his children and grandchildren, is a role model, said Richard. Now his relationship with his daughter — who was seven when he was sent to jail — and her future are one of the forces driving Richard to improve himself, he said. “ I want to set an example for my daughter.” She does well in school, plays football and visits him every two weeks. He also receives visits from his fiancée, a woman he was introduced to through another inmate and is marrying in prison this fall. “ The day may come when I’ll have the opportunity to get out, and I want to be able to function in society,” said Richard. . . . Next month, Tamara ( Tammy) Traverse expects to be released from the Women’s Correctional Centre in Headingley. So she doesn’t end up back there, she’s had to make some major changes — changes she didn’t think she was capable of until she was convinced otherwise by two visitors. “ They were validating me in a way I never have had in my life,” said Traverse, who’s faced her demons in prison with the help of Open Circle volunteer Dianne Cooper and Morison. “ They’re consistently visiting, encouraging and supporting me,” said Traverse, who is 40 and only now getting the help she needs. Traverse’s parents were residential school survivors and struggled with their own demons. “ My mom grew up in dysfunction. She didn’t have very good coping skills,” she said. Traverse recalls being left at home alone as a little kid and not feeling safe. “ I remember parties in the house and being worried about being bothered sexually. I remember I was eight years old, hiding behind the community centre. I was cold, tired and hungry. It was dark out. I was scared. That was life,” she said. Her emotional growth was stunted, and she used drugs as an adult to cope. She ended up in jail. When she was let out, she couldn’t cope. Cooper had just starting visiting her before she was released. “ I picked her up from jail, otherwise the prison system would have driven her to the city and dropped her at a bus stop,” said Cooper. Traverse planned to live with her daughter and baby grandson but wasn’t prepared for life on the outside. “ I took her to apply for welfare and they gave her $ 89, and it had to last for two weeks,” she said. Traverse had to go to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings twice a week, was overwhelmed, under- equipped and unable to cope, said Cooper. “ She was having a terrible time.” Traverse tried robbing a gas bar, a 2013 Winnipeg Police Service news release said. She was sent back to Headingley. If nothing changes for inmates while they’re inside, nothing changes for them when they get outside, said Traverse. “ It’s like a revolving door. Girls get out and don’t know what they’re going to do, and they go back to dysfunction and addiction,” Traverse said. “ Some are doing drugs and selling their bodies for drugs.” Some will end up murdered and missing, she said. “ Some of these girls have never had support in their lives.” But it’s never too late, she said. With Cooper in her corner for nearly two years, Traverse is receiving counselling and belongs to a support group. She’s working on her high school equivalency certificate so she can train to become a licensed esthetician — a goal that used to be just a wish. “ I basically have to start life over to become a member of society who’s contributing, not just taking,” she said. “ That’s all I knew. That’s all I did, but there’s so much more to life. That’s what I want for my children and my grandson.” When she’s released in early August, she’s moving to a second- stage sober- living program. She’s taking care of herself after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. And Traverse has a friend she can call — Cooper. They share a dark sense of humour. Traverse said Cooper mailed her a copy of the book Orange is the New Black , about life in a U. S. federal women’s prison. “ I thought it was pretty funny. Girls do use pads to Swiffer the floor and tampons to curl their hair,” said Traverse. During their weekly visits, she and Cooper never run out of things to talk about. More importantly, Cooper is there when she says she’ll be there. “ She’s very consistent,” Traverse said. “ I’ve never had that in my life.” carol. sanders@ freepress. mb. ca MIKAELA MACKENZIE / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS Open Circle director Rev.
