I woke up on March 1, 2016, and saw my disability check was in my account. Went to get money from my bank account and found out my whole check had disappeared in under 30 minutes.I started freaking out wondering how I was gonna pay my rent and bills. My buddy who works for a vet organization let me know about operation 2nd chance and also let me know he has used them before when he was in need. Operation 2nd chance helped me pay my rent this month so me and my family of three had a roof over our heads while my bank works to figure out what happened to my money. They were such a big help and helped me and my family solve our stress of losing out place. I really appreciate what they do and will recommend them to other vets who are need.

Hello everyone, my name is retired USMC CPL John Smith, I was recently the victim of indentity fraud. They emptied my checkings account and the bank emptied my savings to cover the negative balance leaving me with no money to eat or pay my bills for the month. I was feeling rock bottom but thanks to the advice of a friend named Adam I reached out to Cindy and Operations 2nd chance. Thanks to this organization and Cindy's help I was able to find assistance till the bank reversed the the fraudulent charges on my account. I was able to stay a float in a world seeking to drown me with red tape and I have no words to express the gratitude I have towards this Organization and Cindy for all the help given during my time of need. I pray to never go thru identity theft again. It left me feeling more vulnerable then ever but if anything ever happens I know who to call first. Thank you Operation 2nd Chance for everything you've done I'm truly honored you had my back. Semper Fi

My husband was transferred from the East Coast to the South West for treatment of his PTSD. As a military family, we already budget everything down to the penny, so traveling to see him was not an option. I started looking into different agencies for help with a flight, and I found Operation Second Chance. What a blessing, in less than a week they were able to secure a flight and rental car for me to visit my husband during his treatment. I never imagined that there were groups out there who could help me with this. I am Flying out Friday and I couldn't be more thankful for this opportunity.

Thank you Operation Second Chance!!! Today I just got a Second Chance.
My Electric Bill had been off since April. I was referred to your agency and after filling out a brief application which included my story and my financial situation I was given the opportunity to start all over and have my Electric Service restored. I now have a care taker that has put my life back together so this doesn't ever happen again. Thank you again Operation Second Chance, your assistance has meant so very much to me.

I only wish I could give more than a 5 Star Review to Operation Second Chance. I will never have enough words to describe how incredibly grateful I am for all of the assistance I have received from Operation Second Chance. This past holiday season, I received an unbelievably thoughtful Christmas gift donation package, which was filled to the brim with every gift that I had mentioned -- and MORE! It brought me so much joy to be able to give all of these gifts to my loved ones, where I otherwise would not have been able to give hardly anything this year. Additionally, Operation Second Chance has helped me to prepare for my upcoming wedding by generously offering to pay for my wedding invitations. Not only did they pay for the invitations, but also for the RSVP cards, AND the return address labels. I am are so incredulous, and so, so thankful. Operation Second Chance is truly an organization that makes even the wildest dreams come true -- for both myself and my fiancé, as well as for countless other Service men and women. If you want to find a "great non-profit", you've found it here at Operation Second Chance...but "great" truly does not do them justice. Operation Second Chance is AMAZING. Thank you!

I recently had a death in the family and my bride and I had to fly to California last second to be with my family. I called Operation Second Chance (OSC) and they took care of my flights with no questions asked. I felt horrible because it was a last minute flight. But Cindy told me not to worry about it and for us to go be with my family. It was also pretty late at night when I called. Cindy and OSC are absolutely amazing! I met Cindy when they were just starting out and to be honest, I do t know where I'd be without her. She has been there for me more times than I can count. Thank you so, so much Ci day and OSC!!!

I can not begin to express my thanks to OSC! While I am employed, I am currently out of work for treatment. I am just amazed at their quick response and professionalism. As a father of two disabled kids just making it by, I was not prepared for this hardship even after using credit and our little retirement savings we had. I am grateful that I am able to get the mental health treatment I need, without having to risk loosing our power or water or getting foreclosed. We have always been good with managing our finances, but life comes at you fast and Operation Second Chance is amazing!

Thank you
Cooley Family

I've been working with Operation Second Chance for over 3 years now. This is an incredible organization. Out of all the Wounded Warrior Orgs that I have been a part of OSC hands down has done more for me and my family then any other. Its been a complete blessing to have been lucky enough to be involved with them. They have been there for me at every corner ready and able to provide assistance. If they didn't have the answer or know how to fix something they got me in touch with people who could. There Montana chapter is phenomenal as well. They treat their warriors like a family! Just an all-around amazing organization being ran by amazing people.
