Second Chance is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Second Chance creates opportunities for people to transform their own lives through programs that provide job readiness and life skills training, job placement, behavioral health and prisoner reentry services, relapse prevention support and sober living housing for adults and youth in need. We foster behavioral changes that promote personal responsibility and healthy relationships, leading to positive contributions to society and self-sufficiency.

Founded in 1993, Second Chance strives to ensure all members of our community have the means to achieve self-sufficiency, regardless of age, race, or criminal history. In other words, whether one struggles with addiction, incarceration, homelessness, a family history of criminal behavior or gang involvement, or you just took a wrong turn in life, Second Chance can help you find your way to a positive, successful future. 



Job Readiness Training helps participants cultivate the attitude needed to get and keep a job; enhances self-esteem and self-confidence; teaches résumé preparation and interview skills, computer training and financial literacy; provides job placement assistance and other wrap-around support services; supplies professional clothing.  We assist our participants in every way they need to achieve self-sufficiency and become valuable contributors to their families, employers and communities. 


Youth Programs are focused on helping justice-involved youth overcome neglect, abuse, criminal backgrounds, addiction and other generational barriers to achieving self-sufficiency. STRIVE Forward, Youthful Offender Rehabilitation Program and the Second Chance Youth Garden provide job readiness and occupational skills training, cognitive behavioral therapy, access to education, mentors and case management support for justice-involved youth.  



Sober Living Housing offers safe, substance-free homes that support recovery and foster personal growth. Our goals are to restore self-esteem and self-confidence and eliminate isolation by creating a community atmosphere – all with the ultimate goal of staying clean and sober while transitioning to independent living.
