Naetha Uren, was born in UK and went to USA at age of 8 and is a British citizen. Living in Texas, she qualified as a licensed chemical dependency advisor. She has worked in both the private and non-profit sectors with roles doing counselling and education related to substance misuse and the impact on families.

Naetha became a client of Prisoners Abroad after being arrested in 1998.  Her mother originally established contact with Prisoners Abroad in February 1999 and Naetha was deported five months later in July. We were able to help her with resettlement services on her return, which included: identification, National Insurance number, travel, accommodation, CV, etc.

Thanks to the Resettlement Service getting her on her feet, within six months of her return she had both a job and accommodation.  She was working in hotel management and then with student accommodation for the University of Reading. 

We are thrilled Naetha has joined Prisoners Abroad's Board of Trustees.
