Valjean Society Mission Statement

The Mission of Valjean Society is to provide transitional housing, job placement and mentoring to individuals convicted of a felony. The goal of the organization is to help those individuals become productive members of society.  Valjean Society is a Transitional Living Program created by Michael Harris after being released from the Arizona Department of Corrections for the second time in 2014, out of a desire to inspire belief in men, such as himself, that real-life success after incarceration is possible if one is willing to put in the effort required to achieve it.



Why "Valjean" Society?

Jean Valjean is a fictional character of Victor Hugo's 1862 novel Les Misérables. Hugo depicts the character's 19-year-long struggle to lead a normal life after serving an unthinkable prison sentence.

His story chronicles a man's journey from the "wrong side of the law" to the "right side of humanity" no matter the obstacles placed before him.
