Why Support Ex-Addicts & Ex-Offenders?

We often cringe at the idea of someone getting a “free-ride” from us, the government, or from our family and neighbors.
Given what they don’t “deserve”, rather than earning what they get...

But what happens when an ex-addict or ex-offender cannot make a better life without help?
Or better yet, what happens when we Do Offer the help they need most??

Catch a terrific article Here to learn some of the overwhelming reasons Why offering assistance is important.
