Second Chance Month
The month of April has been established by the United States Congress 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. At OAR, our mission is to strengthen our community through second chances and we hope you can join us in spreading awareness about Second Chance Month!
