MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- New Opportunities Vision Achievement, gives people a second chance at employment and life.

Barbara Freeman knows how tough it can be to find a good job after a dark past.

"I was thinking about moving north cause it was hard for me to get a job. I had some issues prior," Freeman said.

Barbara says after having run in's with the law her future didn't look bright.

Barbara earned a bachelors degree in sociology in 2012, thinking that would offer new opportunities.

She needed more than a diploma with her history.

While outside a store she connected with Juanita Woods of NOVA. From there she got a second chance.

"There was a willingness, Ms. Barbara came to us she was kind of broken and she was beaten up. She was at the end of her road," Woods said.

NOVA provides job readiness to individuals, like how to fill out job applications and how to sell themselves in interviews.

The service is available for free, any everyone is eligible.

NOVA works together with employers and Louisiana Delta Community College to provide job opportunities for a better life.
