Social Enterprise Focus: Baltimore’s Second Chance

Logo

(Number 1 in a series #socialenterpriseUS) 

Three years ago we mentioned Second Chance, Inc. in an article that ran in the Baltimore Sun. Second Chance, Inc. creates “green collar jobs” by taking apart buildings that would otherwise be demolished and dumped in a landfill.  The organization then offers the reclaimed materials and other donated goods to the public at a discount, helping fund job training and workforce development programs that serve those with barriers to employment.

We wanted to see how they’re doing three years later and the results are in.

According to Second Chance, here are the outcomes so far in 2016:
