Each year thousands of cases are brought to Memphis' Juvenile Court, and 350 of them are repeat offenders.

Richard Graham is the executive director of JIFF, which stands for Juvenile Intervention and Faith-Based follow-up.

They're a part of Operation: Safe Community.

Shelley and her children have devoted their time to changing the lives of juvenile offenders even though her husband, contractor J.P. Shelley, was murdered by three teenagers during a robbery back in 2013.
