Second Chances Holiday Party

Categories: Program Stories

Last night we had a holiday party for the kids and families in our Second Chances program. The teens in our program are currently or previously involved with police or the courts, or are considered at-risk. Second Chances provides counseling, advocacy and referrals to prevent entry and re-entry into the juvenile justice system. The evening featured crafts, presents, food and a speech by guest speaker Arlene Adams, who spent time in prison and whose story truly embodies a second chance. “There is greatness in you,” she told the crowd. “We are the world changers.”
