Our Mission

The Second Chance mission is to provide transitional housing and supportive services for individuals after being incarcerated.

The ‘Second Chance’ Program:

Second Chance: Our non-profit (501c3) community outreach, skill development, and transitional housing center specifically designed to help young adults assimilate back into the community after being incarcerated. We serve high-crime, high-poverty communities, striving to enhance both adult and young adult reentry strategies through collaboration with the field, as well as identify and respond to emerging or chronic re-entry challenges. Approximately 9 million people are released from jail each year. Only half of incarcerated adults have a high school degree or equivalent. Employment rates and earning histories of people in prison and jail are often low before incarceration as a result of limited education, low job skill levels, and the prevalence of physical and mental health problems; incarceration only exacerbates these challenges. Second Chance provides transitional housing and supportive services for individuals, families and single parents transitioning from prison, homelessness and unemployment to productive and meaningful lives.
