Kim Kardashian is continuing her work on prison reform by offering to pay rent for a recently-freed prisoner.
Matthew Charles served 20 years behind pars for non-violent drug and weapons charges. He's had a tough time since returning to society and hasn't been able to find a place to live because of his past and recently had his housing application denied because of his background.
Kim heard about his troubles and decided to help. She contacted Charles and told him she wanted to help by setting him up with an apartment and paying his rent for five years.
Charles wrote on Facebook, "I just received the most wonderful news tonight that I just had to share with everyone. Kim Kardashian-West … heard about my situation. Was moved and has decided to help me. And to me in an unbelievable way.”
Charles says that while his rent will be covered for the next five years, he hopes to save up enough money to buy a house of his own. (Us Weekly)
