I can now make a living. I’m free.
"The welding program helped me build character. Mr. Perry taught me how to talk like a welder, how to dress like a welder, how to act like a welder, and most importantly – he taught me how to weld! He had an iron fist way of teaching and because of him, I can now make a living. I'm free."
Candelario Davila, former offender/welder
