Meet the Director
By the time Krystal Scott was 21 years old she had experienced poverty, incarceration, and homelessness. She knows what it is like to sleep in her car. Like many others attempting to overcome negative life changing events, Krystal was told and treated as if she did not deserve a meaningful life. Determined to succeed, Krystal spent months learning how to access resources and to utilize tools, training, and education to rebuild her life. She gained an understanding of the state, federal, and non-profit programs that were available to assist her to get back on her feet. She learned how to obtain affordable housing, a cell phone, assistance with childcare, and much more.
Krystal's deep passion for helping others has led her to become the Director of Re-Entry Services at 2nd Opp. In her capacity she created a directory that provides a referral network for necessary resources provided through state and federal government agencies, non-profit organizations, and Friends of 2nd Opp to assist individuals seeking a 2nd Opportunity.
