How will our services aid the community?


We are very excited as 2nd chances continues to develop. More & more we are learning just exactly the impact we hope to have in every aspect of our community. Without unity, and education across all communities the significance of the mission may not easily be understood. Check it out below, our comprehensive list of how the community is impacted, can you think of other positive results not listed? Let us know!

Misconceptions on those with convictions:

  • Convictions are primarily committed by violent and dangerous people-false

  • Convictions are primarily nonviolent, non abusive convictions-truth

  • Convictions belong to a certain class of people-false

  • Convictions happen across all communities and is an issue we all need to take ownership of

  • Convictions are a mostly a result of guilt-maybe

  • Convictions are a result of charges, without confidence, without education, without representation a lot of scenarios result, more than the community would assume

  • Maximum sentencing impacts the right people-false

  • Maximum sentencing largely decreases community betterment, in part because the primary affected population are non violent, non abusive and further only takes away from the community

  • Offenders return back to prison because they are intrinsically bad and can’t be reformed-false

  • The majority of reformed people do want to live a life beyond this; however, the rules of probation and parole require living by very strict guidelines that are not required of the average person, 85% of recidivism is a result of a technical violation.

  • Technical violations, such as failing to get a job, having a permanent address to live, or not getting to the Parole Officers appointment in time, are just some of those technical violations that can result in recidivism. Getting access to jobs, residence, credit, technical communication or transportation are major obstacles upon returning to the community.

What sets us apart:

  • We specifically address recidivism by acting as a nonprofit placement agency

  • We’ll work with existing partners to strengthen their mission & utilizing their services for training and resources to maximize impact

  • We will offer virtual and transient services

  • A need will exist for our services despite FCRA law changes for KY State, or expungment changes
