Our 7th annual $2 for 2nd Chances fundraiser is now live! We believe that EVERYONE deserves a 2nd chance and sometimes we all need a handUP so we are asking for your support to do just that...to help give handUPs to deserving Georgians in need. It is our goal to raise $3,500 to assist with July's in person events as well as to continue assisting with bus passes, birth certificates, IDs, utilities, groceries and college applications for Georgians impacted by a criminal conviction. Won't you help us reach our goal?

We are not our pasts and even in times when we have made mistakes, we are still deserving of 2nd chances that will support us on our journeys to becoming productive individuals. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the U.S. spends $81 billion a year to lock people up but does very little to help them once they are released. In 2017, the Prison Policy Initiative estimated the actual cost to state and federal governments and impacted families is roughly $182 billion. Gaining employment and housing are the most critical needs and determining factors of success (or failure) for those returning home from incarceration. Therefore, doesn't it make more sense to spend money to create opportunities and pathways for success in order for recently released individuals to become productive so they can take care of themselves and their families and not re-offend as opposed to spending BILLIONS on a system that causes harm, contributes to trauma, divide families and does nothing to reduce crime?
The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise funds for NewLife-Second Chance Outreach, Inc. so they may be able to create and operate transitional housing and job readiness programs in Atlanta, Columbus, middle and south Georgia. This fundraiser is a concerted effort to expand their services to further support the dynamic work they do to support and empower those with criminal convictions in the areas of employment, job readiness, and education while addressing the rising homelessness among those being released from incarceration.
Despite the success the org has had at assisting its clients with securing employment, furthering their education, and overcoming incarcerated-related trauma, most of them continue to have housing instability due to a felony conviction. Therefore, they want to BE the change they seek by starting a housing program that will allow their clients to become fully restored citizens WITH DIGNITY through housing. There IS dignity in housing and no one should be without housing. By providing housing in combination with their current services, they will be able to increase their current success by providing support, access, and empowering those in the homes with job readiness skills, educational empowerment, and trauma care allowing them to be FULLY restored and productive members of their communities thereby reducing their chances of re-offending.
