As a former dual-manager at Second Chance I can say that they are one of the most caring, supportive organizations I have ever worked for. They are invested in their staff and provide opportunity and training for advancement not only professional but personally as well! In my current employment role I continue to work in partnership with Second Chance to place deserving individuals with employment and training opportunities so that they too can have their "Second Chance"!

Second Chance is one of those rare organizations that has committed itself to a true triple bottom line. The workforce development program is addressing one of Baltimore's greatest social challenges, joblessness among those with barriers to employment. The totals tons of demo waste that is diverted from landfills and ultimately repurposed is a model for positive environmental impact. The thing I like most, however, is its ability to sustain itself financially; looking to the donor community for growth initiatives but not daily operations. I got such a good look at the dynamics of Second Chance as a consultant, that had to join the team. Jeff Carroll, former consultant now SC employee
