‘Mother Teresa’ of ex-inmates helps women deal with life after prison

Each time Mo Korchinski was released from jail for trafficking drugs, she was handed a bus ticket and her belongings in a small plastic bag.

She had no identification, no home and was anxious. With nowhere to go she went back to the only life she knew. She headed straight for the Downtown Eastside to buy crack.

Like many newly released prisoners, she returned to dealing drugs, a crime that inevitably landed her back behind bars. In and out of jail numerous times, her life was a revolving door of getting high, busted and locked up. Her last spin was 11 years ago.

Now an author, filmmaker and social worker, Korchinski knows how difficult it is to navigate life in those first few days. So she has made it her life’s work to help other women bridge the gap between prison and life on the outside.

Shortly after her last release, she joined a
