After my separation from the criminal justice system, I did some much-needed hard work on myself. The Second Chance Program gave me the opportunity to find a union job to make sure that my hard work had a purpose. Today, I am now a member of Plumbers UA Local 78 and MCF Board of Directors.

We are currently evaluating opportunities to expand our program into new industries with new partners. More to follow.
