A personnel staffing firm is giving convicted felons a second chance.

Ricky Brown founded the Next Step Staffing agency after he found employment doors closed to him after she served years in prison.

Brown has convinced business owners to give ex-offenders a chance.

Herbert Greene is one of those who have used Brown's agency. Greene has hired 15 ex-cons to clean his building.

Brown says he has a database with 2,000 names of ex-offenders. He needs business owners to come forward with jobs. They can get a substantial tax credit for making the hire.
