Second Chances Community Free Store 

Located at 23 W. Green Street, Second Chances is HSP’s community FREE store. We receive donations from the community and offer them to people 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 exiting our shelter programs a place to shop for needed items as they set up their new home.

Workers at Second Chances are participating in Opportunity WORKS re-entry pre-employment training. They are receiving hands-on job training with long-term case management support as they look to improve their economic situation


Shopping days are Tuesdays & Thursdays from 11AM-3PM by appointment only. Please call 410-848-5599 to schedule a shopping appointment.
Please note: Shopping vouchers are no longer needed.
