The Osborne Association gives parolees a second chance
A group of men and women had a special graduation ceremony Friday to celebrate their second chance at life.
All of them are graduates of The Osborne Association; a nonprofit that helps 8,000 people a year who have been released after being incarcerated.
The program offers parolees classes in fatherhood and career training to help them make better life choices and have a chance to succeed.
Paul Moux, who served 20 years for kidnapping, says he realized he wanted to do more with his life because of a talk given by a teacher at The Osborne Association when he was in prison.
Moux has completed the four-week career counseling course and will be working toward a career in carpentry.
Many of the staff themselves were in prison in the past and say it's important for people to have a second chance.
