What kind of work do Second Chance hires do?
Second Chance hires typically start as General Laborers for CTC Crushing at one of our quarries, but there have been exceptions based on the candidate's qualifications, our needs, and other factors. General Laborers help maintain our crushing equipment and perform other tasks needed by our pit crews. The work is labor intensive - but it also teaches useful skills and the opportunity to move up in position and wage.

Do all Second Chance hires get free housing?
No, not all. Free housing is provided based on availability, need, and other factors.
How many people have been hired through Second Chance?
We don't have an exact count, but in the 18 years since the program was founded, we've had more than 200 employees hired through Second Chance.
Why do we have a Second Chance program?
The Second Chance program is founded on the principle that everyone regardless of their past deserves a second chance. It's the brainchild of GM Bill Mulligan, who was looking for a way to help the growing Las Vegas homeless population.
People struggling with homelessness, along with people with a criminal record or those who have struggled with addiction, often face serious disadvantages when it comes to finding a job or housing. The Second Chance program is designed to help people in a way that removes those disadvantages.
In 18 years, the program has countless success stories, starting with our very first candidate, Cody Huff, who went on to found a ministry called Broken Chains that provides aid to the homeless community. Some of our longest tenured employees, including several managers, were hired through Second Chance, and dozens of candidates have gone on to have successful careers, own their own homes, and have financial freedom.
