2nd chance for felons


There are so many people out there that have made mistakes that have really put them on a downward spiral. These are first time felons. People that only want to go forward and put their past behind them. Currently, at least in Arkansas, there are no programs that would aid a felon who has not served time in prison on re-entry into the work force. 2nd Chance is aimed at trying to get the Legislature to look at this and address the issue. If a first time felon cannot get back into the work force and educate themselves to better their lives, they are going to be right back in trouble again because they will see no way out.
