SECOND CHANCE INITIATIVE
The second chance initiative is a forward-thinking rehabilitation program for women who are nonviolent offenders age 18 to 24. The second chance initiative offers workforce development, partners with other like-minded organizations to provide human services. Our program is specifically for convicted felons and ex-offenders who need a second chance. With training in construction, painting, finish work and interior design. There will be an infusion of skills that allow for a chance at earning a decent living and gaining the knowledge of a new skill.
The Nationwide initiative’s focus will be on derelict and abandoned areas starting with West Baltimore City; then partner with other City Municipalities. The Second Chance Initiative will bring hope and job training to low-income, impoverished areas; infusing the community with a safer and more beautiful neighborhood.
To empower underserved populations in the Park Heights community by providing trauma-informed care and homes that are safe spaces.
We partner with organizations to provide trauma-informed education. We provide the opportunity of homeownership with our “why pay rent when you can own program”. The goal of this initiative is to provide low to middle-class families with home-ownership while training money management and foreclosure prevention
