Serves boys & girls ages 12–17.
Residents in both Another Chance tracks receive an array of services including, but not limited to, weekly on-site individual therapy, support groups, tutoring and Life Skills workshops. The kids can join campus clubs, take cooking classes and participate in a host of community programs like Orange Duffel Bag, and our new mentoring program. The girls and boys at Another Chance need PSAT, SAT and/or ACT prep course. They also need writing coaches to improve spelling and communication skills.
Life at Another Chance is always busy and not always quiet. The kids do their own laundry, clean their rooms and bathrooms and help with chores for the common areas. Weekend outings are popular to the bowling alley, skating rink, high school sporting events and the movies. With the new outdoor recreation completed, the kids
enjoy getting on the basketball courts to burn off some energy. The new recreation area will be a hub of activity with opportunities for cookouts and lots of volunteer-led events.
