I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Operation Second Chance, I wrote to them in a desperate situation, feeling rather hopeless. Several long term PTSD related hospitalizations left our family in a financial crisis that were just weren't pulling out of. Every person at Operation Second Chance that I had the pleasure of speaking to was understanding, empathetic, and, moreover, wanted to help my family out of the situation we were in. They worked quickly and diligently, and a world of stress and anxiety has been lifted off of my shoulders. We can now move forward and focus on recovery. We will be forever grateful to the staff and organization.
Operation Second Chance did exactly what there name says, gave me a second chance at life and stability. This organization was very professional and rapid with there response. They made the process very easy and not complicated. Communication was constant and they showed sincere concern for my situation. This organization is truly a blessing and demonstrates genuine care and concern for those who served their country. Thank you OSC for serving me.
This organization helped out daughters participate in a sport they both so dearly love. If it wasn’t for the financial help of them there is no way we would have been able to afford this for them. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Today, March 6th 2018 Operation Second Chance helped me with my power bill. I recently went back in to retirement and fell behind on some bills due to the lack of extra income. Vanessa and Emily came to the needs of me and my family without hesitation. It is one of the best organizations that help veterans in their time in need. I thank them for their assistance and want everyone to know that they truly make a difference in the community.

My family and I were under much stress with our financial situation. I had to have shoulder surgery that took me out of work for almost 5 months. Operation Second Chance helped us big time with our Mortgage payment. My wife and I couldn’t have felt more love from any program. It was an amazing and helpful experience. We are blessed to have the support during a time of Financial hardship.
Thank you so much!
I case manage Veterans and reached out to Operation Second Chance to assist one Veteran in particular. The female combat Veteran needed a little extra assistance in order to get on top of her situation. Operation Second Chance demonstrated their willingness to help Veterans in need. Operation Second Chance was easy to work with and were top notch professionals. Thank you so much for your help!
Operation Second Chance kept my family from being put out in the cold. When everyone else said no OSC stepped in and help my family. It wasn’t a long drawn out process either. I am forever grateful to Operation Second Chance.
we had just moved into a new house and had all the bills transferred from our old address, our roommate gave us three days notice that she was moving out, that left us with the responsibility of her portion of the rent, plus the transferred back dated bills. Life has hit us hard since my discharge, trying to get back on my feet and get my disability straight. The constant struggle with trying to find the right job that will afford us the money to pay everything and put food on the table. My liaison in Virginia helped me find Operation Second Chance and they helped pay my water and sanitation bill so that is one burden that I don't have to worry about while I try to pick up the pieces. Thank you so much for everything that your organization does. I truly appreciate. I know my kids are too small to understand it, but I know they appreciate being able to splash in the bath tub. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
This organization assisted my veteran and his family with maintaining their rent for a month during the interim of a surprise medical retirement out of the service and receiving active duty pay. Thank you for the prompt and quick turnaround, truly life changing agency!
This organization assisted my veteran client with keeping their only family vehicle from being repossessed after a series of unplanned financial crises. Thank you for the prompt and quick turnaround!! Great agency.
I turned to Operation Second Chance to help a Veteran who was at the end of his rope, and they responded almost immediately! Their assistance prevented my client from being evicted. He has struggled with homelessness since his honorable discharge 3 years ago. Now he plans on focusing on finding work, instead of focusing on finding another temporary place to sleep... Amazing group of people who will be getting the bulk of my donations from now on!
I know many families go through some sort of financial hardship, during the holiday season. I happen to be one of those individuals this year. I would like to thank everyone associated with Operation Second Chance, with the assistance that I so desperately needed. May everyone have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
My family had a horrible unexpected accident. Our Care Coalition representative came and met with me immediately and let me know if we were to need help it was out there for us! We couldn't be more appreciative of the generosity from Operation Second Chance. Thank you for helping my family in a time of need and easing the financial worries that came following such an unexpected accident. We will forever be thankful!!!
Sometimes things happen out of your control and you feel like your ship is sinking. Operation second chance is just that. They help you right the ship. They offer several different solutions to help you out. As a veteran sometimes it's hard to ask for help. Operation second chance never once asked me why this happened, or how this happened. I definitely recommend this organization to anyone who needs help. Thank you so much for your support and help in my time of need. God Bless you.

I'm a single mom of 2 boys and I love off my sole income which is my disability pension. Thank you for giving me breathing room and blessing my family. I am forever humbly grateful.
Operation second chance was absolutely amazing! I was in a financial crisis due to switching to a new career that offered very low pay for their 4 month probationary period. I fell behind on my utilities and started to recieve shut off notices. I applied to Operation Second Chance for possible assistance and within 2 days they had personally called all of my utilities and paid off the entire balances that equaled 500 dollars! They saved me from falling into an even worse predicament. Amazing organization and want to say thank you for comming through for the Veterans and going above and beyond
I recently reached out to Operation Second Chance concerning the funeral expenses of my brother, who was a U.S. Army Veteran. He passed away unexpectedly at 36, and the family had no way of paying for the expenses to give him the proper funeral and burial he deserved. I can't thank OSC enough for being so helpful with the application process, the speedy response due to the funeral time frame, and the ultimate outcome of a donation to the funeral home. I can't express enough how truly grateful I am for the support, and also their very kind words of sympathy. To the ones who make this organization happen, God bless you!
