Hard hats must be worn at all times

isaacWendell Isaac’s employer gave him time off to participate in StoryCorps with his caseworker and friend, Rita Flynn. Wendell shared with us the difficulties he faces in Kansas City after spending 25 years in prison since the age of 17. Thanks to Rita’s help through the TurnAround Program, Mr. Isaac found a comfortable apartment and a well paying construction job. Hats off to that…Or maybe hats on, in this case.
