We launched the world’s largest poverty relief program, which provides food, water, education and healthcare access to over 2 million people every month – including pregnant women and children under 5.
Our team continues to build out the best digital tools to help you reach your customers. We built the world’s most comprehensive database of nonprofits, charities and foundations. And we continue to improve the ability to donate online, making giving easier than ever.
And we partnered with leading brands like Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover to offer low-cost credit cards that provide even greater value to our beneficiaries.

Foster Care, Kinship Care.
A Second Chance, Inc. is a licensed 501(C)(3) foster care organization designed to meet the unique challenges faced by kinship caregivers. We are committed to serving those who provide the best possible care for children entrusted into their care. Our goal is to help strengthen kinship relationships while providing a safe environment for children.
Kinship care is the legal practice of caring for a child outside of one’s biological family. This includes grandparents, uncles, aunties, cousins, siblings, and even friends.
If you value family, you will understand why kinship care is important. It is the most natural way to raise a child. Children thrive when raised by their extended family members. They learn how to interact with others, develop strong bonds with adults, and gain self-confidence.
This is why it is important to ensure that the people who take care of your child are qualified, trustworthy, and stable.
Through this value, we have established a comprehensive framework of social support services needed to authentically serve kinship families. These services include financial assistance, education, employment opportunities, health insurance, mental wellness counseling, and much more.
Our mission is simple: To make sure every child has access to the love and security of his/her birth family.

There are currently 27 children held pre-trial in Philadelphia’s adult jail system. Most are there because their families cannot afford bail money. These kids are being charged with crimes ranging from drug possession to murder. Some are facing life sentences without parole. They are accused of things like selling drugs, robbery, assault, rape, arson, theft and even attempted homicide. But most of them don't know what they're being charged with. And many of them don't understand why they've been arrested. So they go into court every week, hoping the judge will let them out.
The 37 youth involved in this project come from the streets of South Philadelphia, where violence is rampant and police officers aren't always around to protect people. The kids have spent months living on the street, dealing drugs, getting beat up and learning how to survive. Now they're doing something about it - writing poetry, painting murals, making music videos and fashion designs. They want to tell their stories and inspire others. They hope to use art and creativity to help change their lives.
