Hi, I agree with your statement. I have a BA and I cannot find a job. I will have to go back to school to get a masters degree in a field where they will hire ex-felons with degrees. Hope all turns around for you. Read More...

No one will even look at me as I am a felon even though I have messed up once in my life.I am a veteran and now people only look at my 1 screw up. I need a place that will look at everything. We make about 5 times the rent. Just no one wants me in their complex. I live in Spokane wa. Please help.....
Hello all! I've won one battle (home care license), and are now in the phase of another (funding). It's like no one wants to give me a chance; it's aggravating! Glad I know Jesus! I have a page set up at gofundme.com to raise money for working capital to pay my employees, hire more employees, marketing,that kind of stuff. It is hard when you have very little support and most of all when you can't help yourself. There are some good people out here who deserve a second chance, and as a felon, depending on where you are, you have to make that second chance come to pass on your own; with God's help: GRACE! Grace and mercy is not earned, it's given, and I believe that everyone in this group, in this online community has both of those! More so than the average Joe because you're free. Bound by a cliche', a unfair title that is repeatedly used against you. If the United States would go back to what the country was founded on ("one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and Justice for all") we would be moving on with our lives instead of fighting for them, contributing to society instead of being denied, disowned, and disadvantaged by it. Nobody on this earth can send you to heaven or hell, and they can't decide whether or not you're deemed fit to participate as a law abiding citizen.
I pray that everyone in this community come out on top, living the supposedly american dream, supporting yourselves and helping someone who is just like you. Everything has a season, which means it has to end eventually. Keep your head up and eyes on God. May His peace be with you!
I'm in Savannah,ga and im really trying to get a great job with great pay and benefits. It seems the only way to get that is if you know someone to put you in that position. I'm a hard worker but just because I made a mistake doesn't mean I should have to pay for it the rest of my life, plus I have a son that I'm taking care of and I'm missing out on life with him because I work two part time jobs that don't pay enough nor do I receive any benefits. Lord help me and have mercy on me.
