As far as non-profit social enterprises go, Second Chance Inc. gets it. Their mission from the start has been to create jobs -- and they have succeeded in creating jobs that cannot be exported! They employ people with barriers to employment - be it prior incarceration or a low educational level -- and given them a second chance. It provides a second chance to great building materials and items that would otherwise be demolished, diverting tons of waste from the landfills -- even rescuing significant architectural elements at times! I may be biased because I do provide consulting and advice to the company, but from the outside looking in, the company's growth in 10 years has been phenomenal, from an idea to now employing over 100 people -- outstanding from any measure.
