Will Avila is an ex-offender who was sentenced to an adult prison at the age of 16 and spent 10 years in and out of prison, struggling to transition back into the community. Will, like so many other returning citizens, experienced first-hand the challenges—and rejection—that come with transitioning back into society and the workforce. In 2014 he founded Clean Decisions, a commercial kitchena nd cleaning and labor services company with a bigger dream: to help employ returning citizens—people like him—who long for an opportunity to prove to society they are worth investing in.

Venture: Clean Decisions creates a pathway to jobs, careers, and business ventures for returning citizens. Along the way, we create a safe place where returning citizens can heal from past trauma and learn to thrive in society.
