SECOND CHANCE SOCIETY
Our Mission Statement: To give a second chance to homeless and other struggling men and women by providing moral encouragement and removing material barriers to self-sufficiency. Ingrained within the wording of the SCS Mission Statement lies its primary purpose which is to aid homeless and struggling individuals to 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. During ten years of its existence, Second Chance Society has assisted over 2,000 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.
