In December 2014, Charlie Grady created and launched a grassroots effort to foster community and give voice to men and women (ex-offenders/returning citizens)who have been silent—or unheard—for far too long. The targeted group are those involved with gang/group violence and those that inherently suffer from Post-Traumatic & Present Stress Disorder (PTSD) resulting from urban gun violence.What resulted is now known as Hang Time™.

“It’s security, comfort. Meeting new people evaluating what goes on around the world. You never know what anyone goes through and when you get to Hang Time you get to know people. There are opportunities for everyone.”
