Life can be hard. Pitfalls and barriers abound. We do our best to dodge the dangers, but sometimes we just get overwhelmed. Whatever your life story, you most likely know what it’s like to need some kind of a second chance.
In the short video below, you’ll meet three such folks. Antonio, Jess and Will know what it’s like to be down on their luck, to put it mildly. At the height of their desperation, they were introduced to Second Chance. While we’d be naive to claim all the credit for their remarkable transformation, please take just 90 seconds to hear from them directly about how instrumental our programs have been in moving them from chaotic and hopeless lives to those of healthy, constructive ones.
On the heels of a busy Thanksgiving holiday, including the commercialism of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, this thing called “Giving Tuesday” comes around to provide an avenue to support community causes you care about. It is a day that has become increasingly important to nonprofits like ours. Whatever day you happen to be reading this, we hope you’ll consider donating so that Antonio, Jess and Will – and the hundreds of others they represent – will continue to find a life-changing second chance!
