NL-SCO, Inc. Founder Recipient of SR 121

Our founder was honored in senate resolution 121 from Senator Ed Harbison for her dedication and work in her community which has resulted in over 130 returning citizens gaining employment and getting greatly deserved second chances at self-sufficiency! 


We are so proud of our founder and absolutely love what we do at NewLife-Second Chance Outreach, Inc. to better EQUIP, EMPOWER and RESTORE returning citizens to self sufficient and productive members of our communities.


PHYSICAL OFFICE CLOSING: WE NO LONGER PROVIDE JOB REFERRALS (only reentry focused workshops and events in the community) 

It is with great sadness that due to a combination of reasons, including the lack of financial contributions from the community and future endeavors of its President, NewLife-Second Chance Outreach, Inc., announces that it has officially closed its doors of operation located at 416 12th Street, Columbus, GA 31901 and will no longer provide in office job referral services.

Our President has started a new journey in her life that just may take her and the organization to another state where she has received several offers to establish the program there where she and the organization will not only be embraced but will be fully funded.

Until then, and although we will no longer service clients in a physical location, we will continue to maintain our presence within the community by continuing to conduct reentry focused workshops, forums and job fairs at local libraries and will we will continue to build relationships with local employers. We will continue to contact employers about their job openings and continue to be a point of contact for our employer partners who want us to recruit and screen applicants for them. However, instead of seeing clients in an office, we will instead post them on this page so please "like" and "follow" or Facebook page at to stay updated on "felon-friendly" employer job openings.

Our website and email address ( will remain the same and our phone number will be (706) 593-5382, where a volunteer can be reached Tues-Thursday from 10am-3pm. We will hold a private invitation only banquet on December 28th to show appreciation to our donors, supporters and collaborative employment and community partners.


THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT these past 3 years and know that it has been great assisting those deserving of second chances at employment. Special thanks to our employer partners who were willing to give our clients second chances at employment. Without YOU our mission to reduce crime and recidivism wouldn't be fulfilled. Thank you to all of our donors, volunteers and facebook friends and supporters. We would especially like to thank our Board of Directors, Waleisah Wilson, Andez Jones, Colin Martin, Meeko Menefee, Marti Owens, Denise Thomas and Jonathan Greene for volunteering your time to guide this organization into the success that it has become.
