StoryCorps 409: The Come Back
When Darlene Lewis' son was released from prison 20 years ago, he couldn't find work.
So, Darlene decided to do something about it.
She runs an organization dedicated to helping former inmates find jobs. Darlene prepares them for interviews, places them with local businesses, and advocates for them in court.
She's helped thousands of men and women — including James Taylor, who served seven years for weapons possession and drug charges.
Today, James works as a videographer, youth mentor, and also volunteers for Darlene's organization.
They spoke at StoryCorps.
