Second Chances Free Store

Located at 23 W. Green Street, Second Chances is HSP’s community FREE store. We receive generous donations from the community and offer them to those individuals who are in need. We provide a wide array of goods, like: household items, small appliances, decorations, toys, clothing and furniture. Our primary purpose is to give those individuals who are exiting our shelter programs a place to shop for much-needed items, as they set up their new home.

Workers at Second Chances are participants of our Opportunity WORKS re-entry pre-employment training. They receive hands-on job training with long-term case management support, as they work to improve their economic situation
