Do I need an article?


...make better life choices. Grammerly suggested ...make a better life choices.

See example:

Ex-offenders who are able to assimilate into society with job skills, employment, permanent housing and a safe stable family environment have the ability to make better life choices.

Software doesn't understand context.  I have no idea why it made that suggestion.  I'd ignore it.

I would also change "assimilate into society with" to "re-enter society with".  You assimilate with the thing (society) you are becoming like.  The skills will help them to assimilate, but they don't assimilate with the skills.
