Second Chance Reentry, Inc. (SCR), is a 501(C) 3 organization serving the Nassau County area. SCR was created by and for individuals personally impacted by mass incarceration, we come from a place of intimate understanding, and we have firsthand experience with the challenges of reintegration after incarceration.
To empower formerly incarcerated individuals and their families to create sustainable and community-based reentry solutions that build self-efficacy, foster social and economic mobility, as they transition back into society. Second Chance Reentry’s ‘open-door’ policy is intentional, we seek to deliver a democratic process within our leadership structure so constituents feel welcomed, valued, and empowered to increase their ability to engage in a movement for social change, thus, gaining autonomy and, more importantly, breaking the cycle of recidivism. Due to this dynamic, we are empowered to create a social movement to shift the traditional narrative that formerly incarcerated individuals are without redemption.
