About Our Mission

    Taylor Made Re-Entry creates unique experiences to facilitate safe and successful re-entries back into the community. Our customized programs are designed to provide a structured system that rehabilitates while an impacted citizen is incarcerated and post-release support.

    We are here to advocate for you, your loved ones, and the betterment of the community!


    Our Founder, Dee Dee Taylor

    Dee Dee Taylor grew up the daughter of an incarcerated parent, with no memories of her father outside of prison. She is also the oldest sister of Breonna Taylor who tragically lost her life in a botched raid by Louisville, Kentucky police officers. Dee Dee is determined to change the narrative of her young life and not let bitterness, fear, or trauma dictate her story.


    After graduating from Jackson College with an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice degree in 2014, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work degree with a minor in Psychology from Central Michigan University in 2016, Dee Dee understands that traditional educational instruction is not the basis for change across the country. The innovation, courage, creativity, and commitment to fight for better will move the needle for communities in a positive direction.


    A piece of this revolution is Helping Eradicate Adverse Law-Enforcing (H.E.A.L.) a national movement that addresses the impact created by police officers who have unjustifiably destroyed black and brown communities with their lack of judgment in how policing happens in communities of color.

    Healing is a layered experience that must encompass all groups and people. The second piece of this initiative is educating law enforcement officials on the importance of reevaluating traditional police methods and the procedural errors that are creating hurt in our communities.  


    With this hurt comes pain and with pain comes responsibility; there is an obligation as individuals to recover from our personal hurt. There is an even bigger responsibility in that recovery process to assist others and support their healing journey.

    A Tribute To Our Sister; Breonna Taylor

    On March 13th 2020, Lousiville Metro Police conducted a botched raid that lead to Breonna Taylor's death. The polixe falsified the affadavit for the search warrant that authorized the 'no-knock' ban. After twenty stray bullets flew into her home, eight of those shots hit Breonna, leaving her lifeless.
    Our Father represents many parents who have lost thier children to police violence and racial injustice in America. Unfortunately, my sister didn't make it to see our dad come home.
    Her life was a blessing,
    Her memory is a trasure,
    She is loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.

    Justice For Breonna Taylor
