WE ARE OFFICIALLY ON BREAK! We are an all volunteer org and due to volunteer fatigue and burnout, we are taking a much needed "wellness, recovery and rejuvenation" break. We will be closed from April 23rd-June 4th, returning on June 5th. During this time, we will not be available or responsive to emails, phone calls or social media inquiries. No resources will go out during this time. However, we have scheduled resources to post on our social medias. We will respond to all inquiries upon our return. If you are in need of reentry assistance, food, rental or other assistance please see the following attached and listed resources that may help:


Again, no resources will go out via email until after we return but we have job fairs and other resources scheduled to go out on our social medias so please follow us there:

Until then, please stay safe and if you need to....take a break! It's ok to take a break!

Our Mission

The mission of NewLife-Second Chance Outreach, Inc. is to end mass incarceration by equipping, empowering, and restoring sociallyeconomically and civically disadvantaged Georgians impacted by an arrest, conviction or incarceration by providing services, resources, advocacy and grassroots organizing that supports the replacing of carceral systems of oppression with person and community centered solutions and access to resources that support freedom, inclusiveness, equity, and economic sustainability.  

Our Vision

Collateral consequences are socially, economically, and civically oppressive. Therefore, it is our vision that Georgians impacted by an arrest, conviction, or incarceration, (including immigrant detention) are not subjected to lifelong stigmas, discrimination, surveillance, community supervision, and oppression but rather are able to have freedom to safety, self-autonomy, civil liberties, economic equity and access to the resources they need to become healthy, thriving, self-sufficient and self-sustaining members of their communities. 

This vision includes the inclusivity and recognition of the voices, experiences, and leadership of women and girls in a male-dominated space as effective contributors to a transformed criminal justice system and oppressive policies that target, criminalize, and cause harm to women and girls.

How you can help

We are an all volunteer led organization that depends solely on the generosity and support of believers of 2nd chances to provide our services to Georgians impacted by a criminal conviction. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today by clicking here

Criminal Justice reform work can't be done without the support of allies and supporters who use their voice, influence, power and financial resources to bring awareness to the social injustices and barriers that justice involved people encounter, the importance of giving second chances in employment and housing and to hold policymakers, employers and housing providers accountable for their discriminatory policies that exclude people impacted by criminal convictions.
