Second Chance is passionate about improving people’s lives. Underlying our bustling store, home deconstructions, donation pickups and all the rest is a heart to engender hope, dignity and tangible skills to those who’ve faced obstacles to employment but are eager for restoration. It’s been a wild and wonderful two-decade journey… and we hope for many more!⠀
On occasion, we are fortunate to be able to go the extra mile for individual associates. If you’ve been to the store much over the past 13 years, you’ll likely recognize Antonio’s smiling face. He has risen through our ranks and become a powerful mentor to many others. You can watch some of his inspirational story in our video collection.
When the opportunity presented itself to partner in the purchase of a family home for the Johnson’s, we were eager to make that happen. Listen to Antonio’s response:
“I understand what it means to be homeless and to lack a fit place for a family. This has made my family appreciate this opportunity even more. Without Second Chance it would not have been possible. My family and I just want to say thank you for your passion and willingness to help others and see others accomplish their goals. We really appreciate all the help you have given us. Making it possible for me to own my own home makes me understand that Second Chance is truly an amazing organization. Thank you.”
Pretty cool, huh? Come say congrats to Antonio any time from 9 to 5 Thursday through Sunday… and know that your support truly makes a difference!
