What 2nd Chance Is All About
One in four Americans has a criminal record. Long after these 65 million men and women have paid their debt to society, 48,000 documented legal restrictions and widespread social stigma limit their access to jobs, housing, education, and other things necessary for a full and productive life. The Second Chance Job & Resource Fair aims to provide these members of DFW society with a true second chance for steady employment.

More than half a million people are released from federal and state jails and prisons in this country each year. Following their release, roughly two-thirds of ex-offenders are arrested for a new offense within three years resulting in a seemingly unbreakable vicious cycle. Why? Because many individuals are unable to find employment after being released. Studies have shown that instances of recidivism is decreased from 70% to 8%* with solid employment opportunities. The CMBC 2nd Chance Job and Resource Fair will provide opportunities for individuals who are unemployed, underemployed, have dropped out of high school and those who have made mistakes in the past, including nonviolent ex-felons, and are in need of a second chance.
