(SCES) is a non-profit organization of human resource professionals that seeks to promote financial security for at-risk women and their dependents through comprehensive training and career development services. The vast majority of the women we serve are victims of domestic violence, though we serve other at-risk women as well. We provide free professional human resource services to help at-risk women enter the workforce and achieve true financial independence, thereby eliminating their financial dependence on the abuser and enabling the women, and their children, to live free from abuse.
Second Chance is daily working to expand our capacity to make a difference in the lives of women and children. Now, more than ever, Second Chance needs you to partner with us to make a difference in the lives of domestic violence survivors and their children.
