FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN HELP OTHERS HELP THEMSELVES
When individuals are looking to get back on their feet after a life-changing setback, they are often financially challenged and unable to access the types of transformative programs and follow-up services they so desperately need. People who want to help can take a very tangible action: committing to sponsor one or more individuals for our programming and supportive services.
When we launch our sponsorship program, you'll be able to give someone FULL ACCESS to:
Our three-course learning track of life-skills and employment-readiness programming
Our job and housing referral network
Virtual peer support groups
Upon making your payment, you will be matched with one or more recipients who will be immediately enrolled to start the process. (Or, if you already have a specific person you want to sponsor, just let us know.) As a sponsor, you will get:
Periodic updates from the individual(s) on their progress throughout the program.
A personalized note from them upon their completion of the program.
The opportunity to directly connect with the individual(s) to provide mentoring, support, and/or job or housing referrals.*
* This is optional. 2nd Opportunity will facilitate the exchange of the progress reports and personal notes to preserve the anonymity of both the sponsor and the recipient unless both parties agree to direct contact.
SEE YOUR DOLLARS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Our programs help individuals overcome negative life-changing events so they can move forward with dignity and purpose, while also becoming productive, self-sufficient members of society. When you become a 2nd Opportunity sponsor, your money won’t get absorbed into operating costs or fundraising expenses.
It will directly help one or more individuals find hope for a better future – and give them a plan to get there. You will hear from the human beings you are helping and see the impact you are having in their lives. What could be more rewarding than that?
