Our History

Second Chance Employment Services (SCES) is a nonprofit organization established in September 2001. SCES places financially at-risk women in meaningful employment positions. We focus on vulnerable high-risk women, who often are the sole support for their dependents and who have limited job skills or extraordinary barriers to seeking employment.
