She is our “Role Model” for our inmate/mentees.
As a result of Pamela’s past, (which you can read more about), she leads by example for women and men in prison which has led her to have such great passion and purpose to help these lost and forgotten become trained, equipped and empowered, to never return to the prison system again, but become pillars to our society.
Pamela started Chebar Ministries while in prison through the class called, 'Daughters of Zion, Women of God, Using Their Time Wisely’. Since her release Nov. 18, 2010, she has created programs under the name of LifeChangers Legacy.
She has been called by God to this ministry to “Women in prison on drug related charges…..and their families” and we are so blessed that she has accepted that “call” since she is so uniquely qualified to head this ministry. Her entire life has prepared her for tackling America’s number one problem. For the past two years Pamela has run a transition house on the outside of the prison.
Pamela is continually enhancing her science and biblical knowledge to make LifeChangers Legacy the very best possible in helping the inmate/mentee. She has become a certified Specialist in many fields of Alcohol and Substance Abuse and is certified as a Paracletos Biblical Specialty Counselor and Practioner. Pamela has learned the history of the Stages of Change (Trans-theoretical Model) and works with many with trauma and uses her expertise in Trauma Recovery Empowerment Model (TREM). She has obtained an understanding through training of how to use Enhanced Supervision Program (ESP) techniques to reinforce the change process. She is certified as a Forgiving Forward Life Coach and is currently undergoing her Certification Licensing to become a Correctional Chaplain.
She knows the need for these in her field of helping others to transform their thinking.

LCL Mentee Director
Michelle Cole is Mentee Director with LifeChangers Legacy, Chebar Ministries, Inc. Our program is a vital to the lives of all the ladies that are behind the wall. It is a matter of life and death to them. And not to be able to have the one on one from us and their Mentors would be detrimental to there mental and physical and emotional well-being. And plays an important roll as to when they are transitioned to going back to society and to be able to function in Society and to be able to make it in the outside world and not fall back into old patterns and old mine sets and end up back behind the wall as most do as a revolving door. I feel as a mentor myself two five of the ladies that are in our program and your facilities and all the other mentors will help these ladies in many many aspects of their lives that will affect them for the rest of their lives. And without our program I feel that it would be a great loss to them and would hurt them in so many other ways and aspects of their lives rather than helping them. As they have already experienced being rejected by their families and their loved ones, friends from the outside. Most of these ladies do not have a support system from the outside world and we as ther mentor are the only connection to the outside that they have. We are there support. We not only give them moral support but spiritual support and guidance through the word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit. As being a mentor to these ladies it is not only helped them but it is also helped me and and I can say that it is also helped other mentors as well. I beg of you to please allow us to continue our ministry through JPay to be able to email these women on a weekly basis through our mentorship program. Thank you so much. Godspeed, Michelle Cole, Mentee Liaison Director with LifeChangers Legacy/Chebar Ministries, Inc.

Hon. H.E. Sir. Dr. Raphael Louis
Raphael Louis, (born in Les Cayes, Haiti), human rights advocate, political nationalist, federal and provincial government lobbyist, Founder, President & CEO of the Federal Association for the Advancement of Visible Minorities (FAAVM), Founder & Leader of The National Coalition Party of Canada (NCPC). His humanitarian, social justice and political advocacy helps underprivileged minorities, ushering in a peaceful democratic transition. Raphael has been awarded several humanitarian prizes, diplomatic credentials, chivalric and nobility titles and recognition from various institutions and organizations worldwide.
Early Life and Work
Raphael Louisis the son of Idanor Louis and Yva G. Louis. Young Raphael attended elementary and secondary schools at Seminaire Adventiste Franco Haitien (SAFH) and was a brilliant student. Raphael was deeply impacted by the socioeconomic and environmental conditions of Haiti and expressed his concerns through music, such as piano and guitar. He received a scholarship at Lynn William Rouzier School of Arts where he studied Ballet and Haitian Arts and Culture. He also wrote and co-produced a TV film-documentary, while working at a local television station. Raphaelmoved to Naples, Florida (USA) to be reunited with his father. After his father’s death, Raphael moved to Canada seeking asylum on the grounds that returning to Haiti would lead to persecution on account of religious, human rights and political beliefs. He attended College and University where he studied law, criminology and other self interest courses. Raphael has been leading the FAAVM organization for the past sixteen (16) years, and is NCPC Leader through which he is helping revitalize and advance democracy in Canada.
Wrongful Conviction and Incarceration
Raphael was incarcerated at William Head InstitutionPrison, in Victoria British Columbia for a crime he did not commit. He was charged and convicted of fraud by Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), a federal government institution, where Raphael received absolutely no money. He filed his income tax legally without any false document then after his claim was denied by the agency; they decided to appear before a judge and made false statement to obtain a search warrant. The search warrant was executed by the CRA agents and the police where various FAAVM legal documents were seized. At his pre-sentence hearing, the officer indicated that Raphael required psychological or psychiatric evaluations because one of his website was promoting his dream to one day become Prime Minister of Canada. The judge declared him a danger to society at his sentencing hearing and was sent to prison accordingly. During his incarceration, Raphael was pressured to terminate his FAAVM organization’s activities, denied his right to appeal and denied his right to accelerated parole. Raphael continues to fight for human rights and justice and hopeful to get his life back one day.
Humanitarian and Philanthropist
Raphael battles for a more just and fair world and his experiences with human rights inequities inspired him to create and establish the Federal Association for the Advancement of Visible Minorities (FAAVM) as a vital socioeconomic and humanitarian instrument to vehicle social justice, fundamental freedoms, transnational solidarity and global peace amongst minorities and between peoples of the world. FAAVM existence represents a significant multilateral humanitarian system, which stands firmly as a human rights watchdog to protect human beings from crimes against humanity and to have recourse to a justice system based on the element of truth and the rule of law.
