At a young age I found myself addicted to drugs for 22 years.  I would have thought that if someone would just give me a chance and offer me a little help, I would be able to get my life on the right track and have a future for my life instead of getting several felonies and several trips to prison.  Feeling the same way, someone finally gave me a chance and I found that through the CCEF Foundation.  They have helped me take steps necessary to benefit my life by paying my tuition cost at ABC Training Academy and giving me the opportunity to obtain a trade certificate in carpentry and for that I am truly grateful.
