Also be sure to check out the second chance reentry programs in your state! Also in addition to the programs offer support! Support comes indifferent forms just by being a listening ear, offering information like this as well as encourage a person starting over to create plans and write things down! A new beginning and fresh start can happen to any of us not just from being incarcerated but even moving, getting a divorce, finishing high school/college, a recent death, being sick ect! This is why we should offer encouragement, support, and resources! Have a great day y’all I hope this was helpful
