  1. I am a person who was charged, but not convicted of misdemeanor larceny. January of 2019 my lawyer will return to court to let the judge know I have behaved and complied with paying court costs and community service. However no one will hire me because this is on my record. One employer told me that she couldn’t hire me because I was a felon ?? But I’m not. And I need work. Help please

  2. I am an ex offender that use to have a drug problem I have been clean for 2 years but can’t seem to find a job if there are any programs that can help please let me know.

  3. Ms. McCray,
    These are the steps that I would do if I were in your shoes:
    #1 enter a re-entry program
    #2 learn and work that program garnering any insights and knowledge…remember knowledge is key. Nobody can take knowledge, insight, and wisdom from you.
    #3 you are free…now…let’s re-invent yourself….think of yourself as a actor….how do you want your life to look like now?
    #4 don’t hang out with negative people or in negative places….
    #5 forgive yourself and forgive others
