Wednesday afternoon was all about second chances for several formerly incarcerated women. The nonprofit Mothers In Charge held a special graduation part of the reentry program.
Mothers in Charge is working to stop women from going back to prison through education. Eight women graduated and are eager to take the next step, putting their lives back on track.
The graduates were celebrated with awards in front of friends, family and alumni after completing the 12-week program.
