Providing hope for the many hopeless men, women and children affected by incarceration.
2ndchances.Life is a nonprofit dedicated to advocating for the voiceless men, women and children affected by incarceration. More importantly we are committed to providing a healthy environment that ensures each person has the opportunity to move forward in life and accomplish their dreams.
Today nearly 50% of the US prison population are non-violent offenders (i.e. marijuana). At 2ndChaces.Life we seek to change the narrative that the word “Felon” carries in our society.
At 2ndChances.Life we provide each individual candidate with their own apartment. We believe a solid foundation first starts with a home to call your own. In addition, we provide job placement; life learning skills; continued education such as college; and family involvement. Each candidate must first commit to 18 months of individual counseling as we understand the importance of mental health; especially considering the challenges faced during incarceration. In addition, we provide mentorship programs for children ranging from the ages 5-24 years old.
