Sam Nagy knows how difficult life on the streets can be. While dealing with mental illness and drug addiction, Sam was often living on the streets. As a former inmate and current employee with Community Partnership of Southern Arizona (CPSA), Sam is a powerful testimony to the fact that recovery works.

Second Chance Tucson will host a community forum focused on strategies to overcome challenges faced by people with prior convictions. Discussion will focus on why successful re-entry matters to our entire community.
