Our Story

 

Who We Are.

 

We are RED – Rehabilitation Enables Dreams

RED is a public charity nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. At RED, we engineer rehabilitation programs for pre and post adjudication first-time, nonviolent, youthful offenders. RED rehabilitative programs enhance the employment potential of individuals with a criminal record while emphasizing the safekeeping of our communities.

David Lee Windecher founded RED Inc. in March of 2015.

Windecher is a criminal defense attorney licensed to practice law in Georgia and Florida. Prior to being sworn into the Georgia and Florida Bar, Windecher was an impoverished minority who was arrested 13 times and spent over 7-months incarcerated. He dropped out of high school and joined a criminal street gang in an attempt to overcome a poverty stricken life. Windecher began his path to rehabilitation when he received his GED in March of 1998 and took his first academic step toward becoming a dual-licensed practitioner. Windecher understands the empowering effects of obtaining an education in order to facilitate upward social mobility.

Windecher chronicled his life’s journey of transitioning from a defendant to defense attorney in an inspirational autobiography — The AmerIcan Dream | HisStory In The Making. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each copy of The AmerIcan Dream | HisStory In The Making is donated to RED. 

Our MISSION

Our mission is to increase literacy, reduce poverty and stop recidivism amongst America’s youthful offenders. To accomplish our mission, RED provides courthouses with research driven rehabilitative programs which augment an individual’s ability to remain out of the criminal justice system.

RED programs — increase reading literacy through task-oriented comprehension and creative writing workshops; increase financial literacy through task-oriented money management workshops; and increase civic literacy through task-oriented soft skills and civil rights workshops.
