About Me

"Stephanie Jeffcoat found herself in and out of prison due to her drug addiction. As a result of a rape Stephanie found herself homeless and pregnant. She grew more depressed and fell even harder into her addiction. She ended up homeless, sleeping in her car with no support and no one to help her through one of the hardest times in her life. After she gave birth, she ended up back in jail for 6 and a half months. During this time, her baby girl was adopted out without notice from Family Court Services. After her release she felt lost and confused but did everything in her power to get her daughter back. Three years later, she is still fighting today. Although this is a painful time in her life she is thankful for the lessons she has learned because they’ve shaped her into the person she is today."

FIR4E is a newly formed non-profit based in Orange County and was founded by highly regarded public policy organizer and activist Stephanie Jeffcoat. Ms. Jeffcoat served for four years as a public policy advocate and community organizer for the nationally acclaimed A New Way of Life Reentry Project. There, she worked with state legislators, allied non-profits, and grassroots activists across California to pass legislation that meaningfully improved the criminal justice and child welfare system. Ms. Jeffcoat is committed to bringing these high quality services—such as reentry housing, case management, family reunification services, and more– to Orange County.
