                                      ANNOUNCEMENTS

July 7, 2022 at 3pm. Reaching the UNbanked & UNDERbanked. See details and registration info at upcoming events.

NEW HOURS & REDUCTION OF SERVICES: Due to a lack of volunteers, effective immediately, we are no longer be open on Mondays and Fridays. Please note the change in our new hours of operation: Tues-Thurs, 9a-5p. Resources (education, legal, reentry focused events, legislative updates, etc.) will still be posted to our Facebook page as we receive them. Since opening in 2014, we have assisted 300+ individuals with gaining employment and connecting to housing and educational opportunities. However, due to their lack of support to support us with our needs for them to notify us of their new jobs and housing placements, so that we can apply for grants, we are no longer accepting background friendly job openings and housing vacancies and we are no longer sharing these opportunities with those we serve. We are a volunteer ran organization and we cannot continue to do this work without the support of those we serve.

                     Don't Shop Where You Can't Work

Here at NewLife-Second Chance Outreach, Inc. we believe that EVERYONE deserves a second chance and that everyone has dignity and the potential to be productive community members when given the chance to. As an organization that EXCLUSIVE serves those impacted by a criminal conviction, we are committed to empowering those we serve who deserve second chances get the opportunities they are so often denied. We have put out a call to action for direcly impacted individuals, our familes, friends and allies to be intentional in where we spend our money by ONLY supporting businesses that support us.

 

Therefore, we are asking that you NOT shop where you and your loved one cannot work! Going forward, we will be highlighing businesses throughout the country that are 2nd chance employers and are asking that you support them and to thank them for believing in 2nd chances. We want to get the point across that despite being locked out of employment oppoortunites because of a criminal conviction, we are still consumers and if businesses will not support us, we will support those that do! You can read more about our campaign to support 2nd chance employers on our Facebook call to action campain page: Don't Shop Where You Can't Work.
