We accomplish this through programs that provide job readiness and life skills training, along with job placement, mental health and prisoner re-entry services, relapse prevention and sober-living housing for adults and youth in need.

Second Chance - Our Vision

Second Chance is the most effective solution for reducing recidivism, unemployment and homelessness, empowering our clients to make sustainable personal changes that positively impact society.
