I am a recovering addict, when I came out of my six month rehabilitaion. I was in need of guidance and support, from and for housing. My second chance was highly recommended. I immediately called and talked to Ms. Royce. I met with her and all went well. But that was'nt the end. I lived in her transitional house, which was so supportive in everything. My second chance taught me responsibility, love and courage. I also picked up some tips from Ms. Royce, how to conduct myself as a LADY. I just want to thank Ms. Royce and her Staff for being there and being so supportive. I love Ms Royce so very much she is truly a BLESSING.

I was a client of My Second Chance and what an experience it has been. When I came in I had wanted to finally work on me. My husband was missing for days on end and I was tired of trying to "fix" him. I decided to start fixing myself. Royce (the founder) talked me into going back to school, after 30 years, and what a great decision it has been. By living in a Supportive Living enviornment I am able to work full time, go to school at night and drive my "paid for" car versus the bus I had been riding. I am still working things out with my husband but today, with the help of My Second Chance, I know I mean something to me and I am worth good things in life. Thank you Royce for giving me a second chance at life!
