Starting over again can be tough for anyone, especially those who have been recently released from prison and need to find a job. However, with a halfway house called Success House, these men can join society once again. Karen Stevens has been a volunteer director for the past three years. She helps recently released men from the penitentiary find a job and adjust to society. They will live in the halfway house anywhere from three to six months. The men must participate in chores and pay rent of $91, which includes everything they need in the household. The halfway house receives donations from the community, which includes clothing, but she says they can always use more. Even though Stevens helps the men create resumes, they still have a difficult time finding work due to background checks. All these men want, is for someone to give them a second chance to turn their life around.
