Second Chance Society

How We’ve Helped


Sande & Carlos

I am so very thankful for our community being there when I needed help. Today I am no longer a victim of child abuse, molestation, domestic violence, rape, alcoholism, cancer, homelessness, and PTSD.  I sought out and used the resources offered to me in our community.  I survived and overcame the distress of these traumatic situations. Thanks to the counseling and education I received, life is so much better. I graduated from the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center’s Homeless Program in June 2015. While there, the Education Counselor encouraged me to re-pursue getting an education. He introduced me an organization, Second Chance Society who he said may help me with books. I have felt blessed by their support in my life from that day on!  Unbeknownst to them, they encouraged me at times of distress to carry on with the new life I have now.  I continue to feel obliged to them to succeed. With their support, I have made true friendships.  I am currently an honor roll Broward College student who is 75% finished with an Associates in Applied Science Degree and have already obtained a Certification in Office Software Applications. I am much obliged to Second Chance Society! That motivates me to keep pursuing a better life for my family and me. I have yet to put into words what a difference they have made in our lives.  Against all odds, statistics, however you want to put it, I am SUCCESSFUL!
