Second Heart Homes, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing permanent housing to those with mental illness who have experienced or are at-risk of homelessness. Our goal is to provide long-term solutions that revive dignity and enhance quality of life through self-sufficiency.
Second Heart Homes meets people where they are at and finds the best quality of life through building independence. This restoration of dignity is accomplished through the Second Heart Housing Program. A client-centric approach is applied where individual needs are identified and adapted as clients experience new challenges and growth.
Since receiving our 501(c)(3) designation last year, we have purchased two homes that provide hope for twelve individuals with severe mental illness coming off the street. We also warmly welcome our newest employee, Maya, who has a background as a behavior analyst.
Second Heart Homes received the Michael Saunders Company Foundation grant in June of this year. The funds were used to launch a pilot skills-training workshop that has already had its first successful graduate. Nick learned competencies related to accountability, communication, computer literacy, conflict resolution, critical thinking, financial planning, peer mentorship, public speaking, and time management. Nick was able to have all his court fines removed through community service and was escorted by a local judge as he received his right to vote and participated in this year’s election.
