At Re-Wake, A Second Chance Infused With The Power Of Art

An open road on the Re-Wake website.

Re-Wake is a faith-based nonprofit here in Chattanooga that aims to reduce recidivism by providing employment assistance and family support to those who need a second chance after serving time behind bars.
