Second Chance Motto:



Hi, my name is Randy. The first day I joined Second Chance I was immediately impressed by the cheerful smiles and all the wonderful people within.  Each person greeted me and made me feel welcome.  Since I have joined Second Chance, my memory has surprisingly come back to me. What a wonderful surprise that is!  I had brain surgery from a car accident causing trouble with my short term memory.  I am remembering much much more than before.  Not only do I remember better, I remember exact numbers of things now.  Dates are easier for me to remember.  Thanks to Second Chance, as an example, I read information from the computer.  I’ve been able to retain this information now for about three weeks.  I never could before after my accident until now. Thank you Second Chance for a second chance!


Hi, my name is Shamika. I’m 31 years old and I have been a member of Second Chance since 2009. When I was 7 years old I was riding my ten speed-bicycle to the store.  I crossed the street by myself and suddenly a black truck hit me in the street. The wheel of the bicycle was over my right leg and the owner of the store called the ambulance and said there is a little girl in the street who is unconscious. They rushed me to the emergency room where they had all kinds of machines hooked up to me. I stayed at the hospital to recover then I went to physical therapy. I graduated from high school in 2004. From 2005 - 2007 I attended Chautauqua Charter School where they helped me find a job. I like to have fun with my family and friends and I also attend church. I like to talk on the telephone and play my computer and my Playstation 2. I’m also a Wii champion. At Second Chance I like to help people and I like volunteering at the Blessing of the fleet, Jamboree, Bingo, Music, Cooking, and Yard sale. My goals are living in my own apartment and being independent
