Second Chance is an incredible organization filled with some of the most friendly, hard-working people I've met. By offering a second chance to people struggling with other employment options, Second Chance offered jobs to those in the community who would otherwise be turned away. This is something inspiring; I think every company should take steps to follow their lead. I learned so much from volunteering at Second Chance and have such a large amount of respect and excitement toward the whole organization. They are doing great things for the community!

It was the pleasure of Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) to be the first nonprofit to hold our wine tasting in Second Chance's new and fabulous event space. The venue is as fantastic as their employees! They deliver top notch customer service and bent over backwards to help us with anything and everything we needed. We were thrilled to be able to bring 300 people to shop Second Chance while attending our event! Thank you Second Chance for hosting BARCS and allowing us to raise funds to give so many of our neglected and abused cats and dogs a second chance at finding a loving home!
