Dear Operation Second Chance,

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for your compassion and consideration providing me/family with the necessary funding to prevent certain eviction in my time of financial distress. Without the kindness, generosity and professionalism of the O.S.C Staff, I would have been lost, exhausting all other means O.S.C really came through.

Thanking You Sincerely,


Jacques Alexander

When you are faced with difficult unexpected circumstances, especially medically related, there is no amount of planning that can prepare you for the obstacles you may face. The last thing you want to have to worry about is being able to have basic needs covered financially. This creates an amount of stress that is hard to comprehend. Over the last year my family faced a medical crisis with multiple back to back major surgeries and over 200 doctors’ visits. Operation Second Chance was there for our family in a big way in our time of need. I am not sure how we would have been able to face the next day. Operation Second Chance was efficient, sympathized, and thorough. We cannot express the gratitude we have for this amazing Veteran organization.

Thank you for keeping me alive as I have been through so many set backs, losses and life experiences as we "rain falls on every man's door" and I appreciate the umbrella from Second Chance when I needed an extra hand up rather than a hand out. I want to be able to give back to Operation Second Chance once I'm back on my feet because without programs like this then I would be in dire straits and homeless. But remember, "Everyday He gives us a brand new mercy!" Won't He do it! Blessings to Second Chance and Much Appreciated.

Operation Second Chance inc. Really came through for my family.

A week before I was to be medically retired from the Army due to injuries sustained while deployed to Afghanistan.

We had a terrible storm that broke a very large oak tree near my house. About 4 tons of that tree fell through the master bed room of the house we bought just a year prior. Destroying the roof, upstairs and damaging the first floor. We wont be able to move back in for 3 to 6 months.

We lost most of our clothes and furniture. Luckily no one was hurt, that's all that really matters to me.

Now my greatest concern was I had pre planned out my finances until my retirement pay kicked in month or so.

Now we faced a lot of unexpected expenses and deductibles. Emily at second chance is wonderful and within a day had offered generous finacial help to us so we could pick up the pieces and keep things going financially.

My family and I are deeply grateful to Operation Second Chance for the fast assistance during this difficult time for my family.

It is a very difficult thing for most Soldiers to ask for help, but I am so very glad Operation Second Chance was there there when I needed to.

Respectfully

After almost 5 years and 3 other organizations trying to get help with finding and fitting a recumbent bike, OSC is the first company to come through! Even though it took a couple of months, it's clear to me that's been due to getting it right the first time. I can't thank Cindy, Travis at JRABS, Jamie Price, and Mike Heller enough for getting me connected so I can get back to fitness that doesn't put me in the ER!

After an IED exploded under my position in the truck bed, launching the GMV in which I was riding over 70 feet, back in August 2009, I was extracted from Afghanistan and given a 0% chance of living during the early days of my month and a half coma.

Luckily all of the doctors were wrong and against all odds, I not only woke from the coma, but was able to walk and talk again.

While I’m totally bummed that I’m no longer allowed to be a Marine Raider, I am beyond ecstatic to, not only be alive, but to have healed up so well that I’m virtually indistinguishable from a person who has never been injured.

Operation Second Chance has provided an immeasurable amount of help in keeping this adventure called life an endless string of excitement for me.

While everyone at Operation Second Chance unquestionably gives veterans a Second Chance at life, they are definitely Second to none!

A massive Thank You to everyone involved with Operation Second Chance, for all that you’ve done for me and everything that you continue to do for all of us! You are the best!

At the risk of sounding ridiculous, I must say: Operation Second Chance is so great that there have actually been times when I’ve felt lucky to have been injured so severely, as it afforded me the opportunity to get involved with such an amazing organization. Thank you OSC!

Operation Second Chance is by far hands down the gold standard in how assistance to our Veterans in crisis should be provided. Although there are many organizations that state a mission to support combat Veterans in crisis, often times they have lengthy requirements lists and processes that take up time. By definition, in a crisis situation, time is not something that you have. Operation Second Chance has the fastest turn-around time of almost any organization I have worked with, their record is helping a Veteran family avoid eviction by making a rental payment within 3.5 hours of receiving the application. As a professional working with Veterans in crisis frequently, I am very glad to highly recommend this organization to any Veteran family needing assistance.

This non profit organization is a blessing. I am a disabled vet and I had reached an tough patch in my life and was getting behind on my rent facing an eviction. I was told about this program by my case manager & another lady from a different organization who also helps vets. I was so embarrassed to even ask questions and tell them about my hardship, but they were so polite and telling me not to be embarrassed sometimes things happen that is not in our control. That alone made me feel a little more better, so I filled out all the paperwork and had my case manager fax it. Do you know it only took one day for me to receive a snail mail stating that I was approved and they had made payment. Not only did it take a lot of stress off me, it helped me understand that things in life don’t always go as planned but never be scared or to embarrass to ask for help or guidance

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

We heard about OSC just a few days before we attended their annual retreat. I couldn't believe that they were so welcoming and inviting for us to attend at such a last minute date. The retreat OSC provided my family was priceless. It had been a long time since we had been able to spend time together and not have to worry about the financial burden our vacation would take on us. OSC provided everything for the weekend so that we could relax and enjoy our time together. My daughter found a new passion in fishing and my son got his first experience with a rod! I spent time in the kayak and my husband ate all of his favorite foods and played in the pool with his kids. It was an amazing weekend!

OSC also purchased a kayak, oars, and life vests for my family! We have been out on the kayak and love it! It's really been a great experience with OSC and we're so thankful to have them supporting our family!

My husband suffers from severe PTSD, depression and anxiety from his deployment. He was inpatient for treatment and upon discharge he was connected with Hero's on the Water non profit. He found such peace on being on the water we went ahead, bit the bullet and purchased him his very own kayak so he could go more frequently during the weeks to clear his head. During the 4th of July weekend our kayak car carrier broke during transport and the kayak took off down the highway and sustained some pretty extensive damage. My husband was crushed. We couldn't afford to replace the kayak we had just purchased only a month and a half prior. So I reached out to Operation Second Chance and they are replacing his kayak! I am so thankful this organization stepped in. Hes been making some really great progress with his therapy kayak group and independently I would hate to back track. Thank you OSC so much!

My son was struggling in several areas when he returned from his last deployment and when he was unable to keep up with his monthly living expenses, he was in danger of being evicted for falling behind on rent. He had numerous outstanding bills and was working overtime and still unable to make ends meet, all while trying to learn how to be a single dad to his young son and trying to navigate his new normal.

It was very difficult for him to ask for assistance, as he saw that as a weakness rather then that he was at a very difficult time in his life. When I encouraged him to contact Operation Second Chance, their immediate, warm response and prompt financial assistance made all the difference in the world for him, and his relief was evident. To feel like you're at a dead end with no way out, and then to have someone reach out a hand and offer kindness and gratitude with both word and action, that is a powerful message for a veteran to receive these days. We are forever grateful to Operation Second Chance for their generosity and faith in my son. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

From a grateful family member.

After contacting numerous organizations as a case manager, this was hands-down the fastest and most helpful organization I've worked with. I submitted an application for a vet and received a response in under 24 hours. Documentation required was appropriate and not excessive.

I was an UH-60 Blackhawk pilot in the Army. I separated from the Army in June 2014. I almost gave up my dream of flying until I found the Rotor Transition Program with PSA airlines. PSA airlines partnered with Sky Warriors Flight School takes qualified military rotary wing pilots and teach them how to fly Fixed-Wing aircraft followed by a First Officer position with PSA Airlines. The program is designed so that you can use your Post 9/11 GI Bill to pay for the training and living expenses. I gave my Post 9/11 GI Bill to my son for his education and he graduated this past December with a Criminal Justice degree from UTSA. I was recently interviewed and hired as a First Officer. I start my fixed-wing transition training on June 5th. I'm set to start LOFT at PSA on or about 10 September. I will be without an income for that time frame. Operation Second Chance provided with assistance when My family and I needed the most. Emily Selga was very helpful, she answered every email and phone in a timely manner, in my crisis of need she made me feel like I everything was going to work out. With people such as herself and this organization that help veterans its a wonderful thing and give myself hope. I do plan on paying to forward and helping Operation Second Chance when I get started on my career. From my family Renea, Aviance, Kevin, Kayla and myself thank you for all you do and your help. I truly can't want for the day I am able to return the gesture. Thank you and God Bless

In September we had an incident happened where we needed to seek legal aid. Due to high cost of the legal aid we fell behind our bills which included utilities, car payments, credit cards and others. Due to being over the poverty line for help no one we asked was able to help us with our situation. We reached out to another organization who directed us to Operation Second Chance who helped us with our rent payment so we were able to catch up with our other bills. My husband and I are so grateful to this organization t give us a helping hand when we needed it the most.

I can't begin to express our happiness at this moment. We contacted our case worker with AW2 and he submitted everything to Operation Second chance. As soon as our car warranty went out, our transmission went out, then following our hot water heater went out the first freeze of winter. Needless to say, we were set back and 2 days shy of our utilities getting shut off. Operation Second chance took our application and took us seriously and had the utilities paid after 1 business day. Sure it usually takes time but they didn't hesitate helping a veteran and his family and as a Wounded Warrior, I'm forever in debt with them, I will always donate to this organization.

Operation Second Chance just saved my son and me from being thrown back on the street by a housing that was built specifically for homeless veterans. I fell behind with my rent after my car broke down and I had to get a newer one, and the next thing I knew there were eviction papers served. The very next day Operation Second Chance stepped up to help and protect. Thank you!
