Emergency Crisis Center

Starting July 7, 2020, Second Chance Last Opportunity will change their food and giveaway policy for the safety of residents, along with their volunteers and staff.

Second Chance Last Opportunity will have an order list that residents will use to order the items we have available for giveaway.

COVID 19 has made SCLO put in place precautions on how we can provide a needed and ongoing service for those individuals in crisis, reaching youth and families and grieving and struggling families during the pandemic. At the same time, we must protect those we serve as well as our dedicated staff members and wonderful volunteers.

$20,000 Donation Challenge

After learning about the hunger that is rapidly growing in our community, an anonymous donor has started a matching-donation campaign to raise funds. The goal is $20,000 to be raised (and matched) in 10 days. These badly needed funds will be used to purchase groceries, personal care items and new-baby needs that we will distribute at our building, 1933 Dr. Martin L. King Jr. Way, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 12 noon.

Thank you for spreading love in the form of support for those in need in these challenging times.
