Second Chance Last Opportunity

Second Chance-Last Opportunity (SCLO) is a community-based 501(c)(3) grassroots organization that has been offering life management skills classes to at-risk teens and their low income and/or homeless families since 1995.

Our clients often face multiple health, social and economic challenges, and therefore our approach is holistic as well as empowering. Along with the strategies and skills for success gained from our classes, we offer counseling, health education, youth programs, food distributions, shelter referrals, all with a dose of tough love, if appropriate. Most importantly, we give back the responsibility for turning their lives around to the individuals we serve.

We are proud to share the results we are achieving as well as information about our financials, governance, management, and needs via our profile at The Giving Partner.  Click the logo to review our nonprofit profile there.
