Second Chance joined Live Well San Diego as a recognized partner on October 11, 2017. Our mission is to disrupt the cycles of incarceration and poverty by helping people find their way to self-sufficiency.
Second Chance programs provide job readiness and life skills training, job placement, behavioral health treatment and prisoner reentry services, relapse prevention and sober living housing for adults and youth in need. We address generational issues of poverty, unemployment, addiction, abuse, neglect, criminal thinking and homelessness. We foster behavioral changes that promote personal responsibility, healthy relationships, a strong work ethic, and positive contributions to society.
Founded in 1993, Second Chance strives to ensure all members of our community have the means to achieve self-sufficiency, regardless of age, race, or criminal history. In other words, whether one struggles with addiction, incarceration, homelessness, a family history of criminal behavior or gang involvement, or you just took a wrong turn in life, Second Chance can help you find your way to a positive, successful future.
