Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Dion was raised by his single mother and is a child of a father that spent 35 years of his life in the prison system. Dion himself continued the prison pipeline cycle his father started when he went to prison 3 times. Dion’s eyes were opened through his grandmother who asked the question, “What would you do if something happens to me or your mom while you’re away?” That question began to change everything. He came to realize the call of God to use his experiences to mentor and walk alongside returning citizens while reintegrating into society. Dion is the owner of Heritage Glen Dry Cleaning Service and is married with children and grandchildren.
