Kevin Fell, a young man from Trenton struggled in his youth to battle his substance abuse issues, as a result he found himself behind bars numerous times before the age of twenty five. Now a second year apprentice Kevin looks back at that time in his life as a learning experience. “Jail woke me up; I got sober and decided to rebuild my life”said Kevin. He is currently working toward his dream of purchasing his own home. A goal that would not be attainable if it hadn't been for the guidance and support of council representatives Anthony Verrelli and Scott Macduff from LU 254. Both men mentored the one time college student and helped him to transform his life. Kevin is now one of the many men who has received a second chance from the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters to start a new career as a carpenter.
