Located on the West Side of Chicago, Leslie’s Place helps women transition back into society after being incarcerated.
“I do believe that everyone deserves a second chance,” Brown said. “God gives us a second, third, fourth and fifth chance. Who are we that we can’t reach back and help someone else?”
