Editor's Notes

I have had several people ask me to set up a "Quick Topics Print-Out Page" so they would have something to carry with them in their briefcase so I have stripped out some unneeded information on our web site "Quick Topics" page.  When our data base is completed, I will redo this page and have separate inserts for current jobs and housing.

Don't Forget to Register for this Weekend's (11Oct08) Neighborhood Networks - Give a Second Chance .. Get a Second Chance! Conference on people with felony convictions. | You can: Register on Line or call: 317-328-8995 | To download additional information: Click on Second Chance PDF Flyer
