Second Chance Month
The United States Congress established April as “Second Chance Month” to honor the work of communities, governmental entities, nonprofit organizations, employers, and individuals to remove unnecessary legal and societal barriers that prevent an individual with a criminal history from thriving in the community. OAR believes in second and fair chances and we hope that you can join us in spreading awareness about this wonderful month of second chances.
