Founded in 2001, Second Chance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides people, materials and the environment with a second chance. The Second Chance mission is to retrain and create employment for displaced and unemployed workers in deconstruction methods; reclaim building material to reduce demolition debris overloading landfills; and renew materials to preserve the region's rich architectural heritage. As a result, Second Chance provides jobs and a green collar workforce, protects the natural environment, and preserves our architectural heritage. With the revenue generated, we provide job training and workforce development for those with employment obstacles in the Baltimore region. Second Chance is a social enterprise with a true triple-bottom-line focus. That means everything we do is environmentally sound, socially responsible, and financially viable.
