Yeshua Second Chance Foundation


The Yeshua's Second Chance Foundation recognizes that the challenges to successful ex-offender re-entry include inclusion, equity, education, employment, empowerment and opportunity. In the past, these challenges were often presented as legal and moral imperatives. Today, these challenges represent a new economic dimension vital to the interests of all society. The Foundation is committed to fully prepare ex-offenders to seek and achieve their goals, and become productive members of their community.

The Foundation is dedicated to facilitating the conversion of these valuable human resources to productive citizens, capable and committed to compete in the emerging global economy. By reducing a multitude of barriers faced by most ex-offenders as they seek to make the best of their second chance, the foundation will provide timely programs and services that ensure their successful re-entry. The standards of such services are to promote gainful and relevant employment, eliminate substance dependency, enhance family reunification, and sustain self-worth.

The benefits to the community are incalculable; and, the most obvious include increased public safety, crime reduction, and the promotion of productive tax-paying citizens.
