Advocating to help prisoners and drug users reenter into society.
Advocating to help prisoners and drug users reenter into society.

Carolyn Casey was a drug user for over 30 years; had one baby born addicted to meth and raised four children in the drug lifestyle. She was sentenced to 28 years for selling $120.00 worth of weed and hash and sent to Montana Women’s Prison in 1994. Upon her release Casey started a non-profit organization called Connections, based in Bozeman.

Connections advocates statewide for newly released prisoners to assist them with writing parole plans, finding housing, jobs, clothes, furniture and anything else they may need to be successful with reentering into the community. Another population she works with is active drug users.

Casey received the “Peacemaker Award” from the Community Mediation Center in April of 2006 and the Governors Recognition Award for World AIDS Day in 2007.

Jen Perry - Jelt Belt Sep 08, 2017
Local entrepeneur success story
Local entrepeneur success story

Jelt’s Owner and Inventor, Jen Perry, started Jelt out of pure necessity. As an athletic, busy working mother and business owner, Jen discovered a need for a functional belt to keep her jeans from sagging and her kids from cringing. 

Jen made sure Jelt would stand out from any other belt on the market. Not only is it modern-retro, with a nod to 80’s fashion, but it is also made from 100% recycled water bottles, has a patent-pending buckle design that won’t show a bulge under fitted shirts and an inner gel that grips to pants. The fact that there are no metal parts means it is great for traveling and can be worn through security checkpoints. Bonus! 

The best part of the Jelt brand is our commitment to giving back—to American soldiers wounded in combat and to incarcerated women who want to gain valuable job skills prior to release. Our company strives to help people live a productive life.
