Offender Aid and Restoration of Arlington County (OARA), Inc.
January 30, 2010

I volunteer with OAR and it has been a great experience. OAR helps many people that are trying to get back into the community that have made mistakes in their lives. Everyone deserves a second chance and prisons do not help inmates get back into the community, they sometimes make prisoners even more bitter towards society. OAR gives these people the second chance they deserve. It is not easy coming back into a society you have been pulled out of for many years. OAR helps ex-offenders get back on their feet and provide for themselves and their families again.
