It is a beautiful morning in Mornelle Court, Toronto. Kids are getting ready to leave for school. Waiting in green vests outside their homes is the Safe Walk Program volunteers, ready to walk them safely to Military Trail Public School. They have been a part of these children's lives from as early as ages 6 to when they turn 13.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH CANADA - SECOND CHANCE is a charitable organization registered under Canada Not-For-Profit Corporation Act no.79096-0124
SECOND CHANCE commenced in 2012 as a volunteer based initiative giving individuals a second chance. Adults and Youth of various age groups were able to access services on an adhoc basis. The plague of poverty, bad decisions, internal conflict, isolation and insecurity impacts individuals and their families, often pulling several generations into the fray. Breaking the cycle is the purpose of SECOND CHANCE, where individuals that have lost hope, reliable connections and family can now be serviced for one year with the help of professionally trained and experienced Outreach Specialists, Counsellors, Lawyers, Social Workers and Community Developers, Youth workers, Skill and Career Specialists and more.
Through the dedication and drive of strong internal and external supports, the volunteers take on the challenge of changing a life, one day at a time with a purpose driven mandate.
