Foundation for Second Chances (FFSC) is a community based organization that utilizes hands-on education, mentoring, health awareness and community service to maximize the potential of youth. Second Chances’ goal is to make sure that our children are given all that they need to thrive. This includes a quality education, nutritious food and exercise, a safe and nurturing environment and the chance to give back to their community.
We strive to create an environment of love, compassion, safety and respect. In order to better serve our youth, we have developed a strong network of partners who provide our children and families with all that they need to become engaged and proactive in their communities.
Foundation for Second Chances is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors that keeps us accountable to our mission and leads us forward into even greater service of our community.
