PNS has had multiple questions concerning an organization now operating a prisoner treatment facility in Colbert County. The business entity called “Outreach Reentry Ministry” was incorporated in Lauderdale County in February 1992 by Willie Simpson and John Williams. All registration fees for the organization and its name rights are current.
The registration with the Secretary of State gives the business the right to operate anywhere in the state, certainly including Colbert County. Local business licenses would apply.
PNS hopes this will help answer some readers’ questions. Obviously there are many questions with any “new” facility, and we will continue to monitor and publish any new information.
