Can anyone out there please help us? My husband was released from prison in April of 2006 from the Vienna Correctional Center in Illinois. We live in DuPage County and we'd like to move to Will County soon. It has been extremely hard for him to find a job. All we want to do is move on with our lives and eventually buy a house of our own for our two children to grow up in. We are 36 years old. Does anyone know of any programs, grants, or employers that will hire ex-felons in our area? We are so desperate to live a normal life again!!!! It seems like all of the programs and grants are only geared to people who live in Cook County. Please respond as soon as possible.
