Meet Adrienne. All she wanted was a job. She hated being on public assistance and wanted a chance to work hard and support her kids. But a first-time nonviolent offense on her record was holding her back.
That’s where supporters like you saved Adrienne – and her children – from a life of poverty.
Through the Southern Coalition for Social Justice’s donor-supported Clean Slate program, Adrienne was able to get a Certificate of Relief. This legal document helped her move past her criminal record and find stable housing, education opportunities, and best of all, a job.
That job helped Adrienne fully provide for her children for the first time in many years.
“My Certificate of Relief gave employers the confidence to give me a second chance. For the first time in a long time I feel like my family and I have a promising future.”
When you support SCSJ’s Clean Slate program, you’re not just giving someone like Adrienne a second chance. You’re giving an entire family a better future. And thanks to a generous donor, your gift can help twice as many families if you give today.
Please take a moment to fill out the form below and change twice as many lives by making your gift today.
