Donna began her journey surviving on the street when she was only 13. By 18, she was facing 32 years for drug and gang-related crimes. As an alternative sentence, Donna was placed in a San Francisco program that gave her a 2nd chance.
She has faced all the struggles associated with being an ex-felon and not getting hired, but none of these barriers kept her from success.
She is now Program Manager at Code Tenderloin, a workforce program committed to participants success no matter their past.
