Mission: Our mission is to promote financial security for at-risk women and their dependents through comprehensive job training and employment placement services. The vast majority of the women we serve are victims of domestic violence, though we serve other at-risk women as well. Second Chance provides free professional human resource services to help our clients enter the workforce. We establish the communication pipeline between public and private organizations who offer employment and sponsorship opportunities, we guide clients through every aspect of their job search, and we follow up with our clients for at least two years after placement. (See www.scesnet.org) The goal is to actively assist at-risk women in achieving meaningful, long-term employment positions. We have seen from experience that when these women obtain such employment, they are empowered to become truly self sufficient, to rebuild self-worth, and to leave the cycle of violence permanently. Women from all walks of life have been placed in meaningful, long term employment positions with SCES' assistance. In fact, Second Chance has placed over 600 women in such positions since we opened our doors in 2002.
Results: Over 600 women placed in meaningful, long-term employment positions; Over 1,200 women served.
Geographic areas served: DC, MD, VA, NY, and more
