SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) – A non-profit organization in Newtown is on a mission to empower people in crisis and a community that continually struggles with crime, drugs, domestic violence and unemployment.
Tina Peterman had been selling and doing drugs since she graduated high school, but when Peterman went to prison, she decided enough was enough.
“I was just so tired. I was so tired,” said Peterman. “I’m 55-years old now, so it’s been a long haul, but when I met her, it’s like she cared.”
The person she met was Second Chance, Last Opportunity founder Dr. April Glasco, who Peterman says was the first person to hear her cries for help.
Having found her own second chance, Glasco wanted others to have theirs, too.
