Friends of 2nd Opp
We have created Friends of 2nd Opp as a way to recognize those organizations and companies who are committed to help those seeking to reintegrate and get on with their lives. Fair chance employers that hire people with backgrounds, agencies that provide assistance with connections to essential services, and programs that provide for food, healthcare, and other necessities. This is our way of saying thank you to those that are willing to provide a second opportunity.
If you know of a company or an organization that fits into this category, please share this form with them so we can recognize them. Let's make this grow so our friends who are just starting the journey can see all the areas in which support is available.
