2nd Chances 4 Felons ( 2C4F) was created based on the experiences and struggles that I faced as a felon trying to re-start my life after being convicted of a felony. I searched endlessly for help with finding employment and resources that were available to me in my area and I found NOTHING that could actually help me. I decided to do something that could help myself and other people who were in the same situation as myself in my area. I created 2C4F in August of 2010, since then I have worked hard on a daily basis since the date I created 2C4F to build a company that I feel one day can make a real impact on the world. I have made a lot of accomplishments with this company since when I began it. I assist felons all over the USA now, and have over 600,000 views on my website, and 6200 likes on Facebook. I have also spent this time rebuilding my life and raising my six children. My children are my motivation for being better and doing better. I have just completed college and will walk across the stage in a few months. I am VERY excited about how far I have come with this company and in my life. I feel that I have been given the opportunity of having a 2nd chance and it is my hope to continue to help make others aware that they are 2nd chances available for felons in hopes of reducing the number of people who re-offend because they feel as though they have no other option. I would like to take my company to the next level but I do not have the funding to do so. I have been my only source of funding up until this point and I have not received compensation from any of the people that I assist. It is my goal to raise money in order to do so. I am currently wanting to take my business from a home based office to a company that conducts business from an office outside of my home. I feel that doing this will help me to take an essential step in furthering my business as a whole. I currently conduct business Monday through Friday ( 10am-3pm) from my home office. I have made this work and will continue to but being able to seperate my work from home would be essential in reaching my goal of turn 2C4F into a company that is known around the world.

I am aware that not everyone will have sympathy for the issues and struggles hat felon have because their theory is you committed the crime so you have to deal with the consequences, and I respect their opinions. However, I'd like to point out that everyone makes mistakes and I personally can say that people change based on myself and the number of large number of felons that I have assisted. I work hard on a daily basis to prove my character on who I am and what I do today. I'd like to invite any of you who are reading this the oppportunity to view my website, and blog. www.2ndchances4felons2c4f.blogspot.com ( BLOG) www.facebook.com/pages/2nd-chances-4-felons/129309870447922 9 facebook)
Doing so will allow you to see more of what 2nd Chances 4 Felons is all about. It is my hope to continue to help others be and do better as people and while doing so continue to better myself as a person as well. I am on a mission to reduce the number of felons who re-offend by pointing out opportunities that are available to them in their area. To date I have helped a number of people but I feel if I have the necessary funding there is so much more I can do. The funds that I am requesting will help me to take the necessary steps for the next six months that will get me to a point where I can fund the company on my own. Please find it in your heart to help support this company into making it into what I know it can be by donating to this fundraiser.
