About Second Chance Society

MISSION STATEMENT A not-for-profit organization giving a second chance to homeless and other struggling men and women by providing moral encouragement and removing material barriers to self-sufficiency. VISION STATEMENT When no one else cares, we care. When no other hope exists, we exist. When the future seems dark, we hold up the light.

Second Chance Society (SCS) was founded in 2001. Ingrained within the wording of the SCS Mission Statement lay its primary purpose which is to aid homeless and struggling individuals return to a state of self-sufficiency. With self-sufficiency comes a general state of well being, self-worth, revitalization, and most importantly, hope. Its secondary purpose is to provide ongoing moral encouragement to its clients to ensure their entrance back into society is as unproblematic as possible. Persons helped by Second Chance Society have become homeless or on the edge of homelessness due to a myriad of causes, such as tragic events, health issues, mental illness, alcoholism/addiction, abusive relationships, veterans’ issues and ex-offender issues. During the 10 years of its existence, Second Chance Society has assisted over 2000 men and women, and has become a well known, beloved entity within the Continuum of Care for the Homeless. Many of its clients fondly think of Second Chance Society volunteers and staff members as their surrogate family.
