I met Steve in Detroit. He is going through the system waiting for his turn to get housing. He says it’s a process and it takes time.

Steve spent 16 years in prison. He came home and started to educate himself. He now has a real estate license and is going to college to get a law degree.

Even people who have had a challenging past can change to make a better future. I know because I am one of them.
