Dr. Sarah Scarbrough is the founder and director of the REAL LIFE, which was birthed from her program in the Richmond City Justice Center (jail) after continually seeing the obstacles and hurdles those exiting incarceration continued to face. Her vision was to more comprehensively serve those in adverse situations and through REAL LIFE and the corresponding Community Center, 10 recovery houses, jail programs and expectant mother program, she and her staff are able to do just that. Prior to REAL LIFE, she was the Program Director in the Richmond City Justice Center (jail) for 5 years. She received her PhD and Master’s from VCU’s Wilder School and bachelor’s degree from UVA Wise. When not working, she stays busy with her three children and husband!
