Review for SECOND CHANCE EMPLOYMENT SERVICES INC, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have supported Second Chance Employment Services since its founding. Dr. Ludy Green (and her husband, Joe) captured our hearts with their vision of the need and the opportunity back in 2001. Ludy has taken the organization to a level beyond what we ever expected in those early days. But her dream, her leadership, her passion, the widespread critical need, the wonderful team of volunteers, the benevolent supporters and the business and professional relationships she has developed have built a synergistic, powerful, non profit that has made a difference in so many lives. SCES is truly a force addressing a crying need in a way that continues to tug at our heart strings. They've provided food, shelter, employment, transportation, baby-sitting, medical care, counseling, financial advice...whatever is required to help abused women in need. SCES truly is a GREAT NONPROFIT! Ken and Linda Thornton

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing and hearing those who have found help at such a low and critical time in their lives.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Develop stronger national/international support and reach to address a problem we all know exists. Women in many places don't have a SCES to turn to.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
