One Time Donations
Every bit helps. No amount is too little. Your one time donation can mean the difference between a life spent out on the street, or finally building a file worth living.
Monthly donation help Second Chance Foundation continue its mission known we have the support of the community, and the funds to continue providing scholarships and grants to individuals and institutions committed to recover.
Everyone gives for their own reason. Whether it’s for the simply joy of helping other less fortunate individuals, as a prayer for someone who is still suffering from the disease of addiction, or simply that all contributions are tax deductible, the fact remains that the world is facing an epidemic of drug abuse, which has never been seen before.
Every 19 minutes someone dies of a drug overdose. Most of these overdoses are attributed to prescription opioids. Since the turn of the century the number of overdoses has quadrupled (4x), surpassing the number of deaths as a result of car accidents, surpassing the number of deaths do to shootings.
Every 25 minutes an American baby is born addicted to opioids.
It is estimated that 40% of American adults abuse some form of opioid which should be no surprise given there are nearly 1 million overdoses, of which some 64,000 die, each year.
But this story is not just one of opioid abuse. Youth are at an ever increasing risk of exposure to gateway drugs such as Marijuana. One in ten seniors are now daily smokers according to some reports. In total, 17% of high school kids use drugs during the school day, and 86% of high school kids were fully aware of other kids abusing drugs during the school day.
Unfortunately drugs do not discriminate when it comes to socioeconomic standing or age. As access to drugs, prescription or otherwise, becomes ever more prevalent many are unable to get the help they need. The sad truth is that it is often cheaper to stay on drugs, than to get the help they need.
Second Chance Foundation is committed to helping those who truly want to change and be free of addiction, to do so. But without your help, this is not possible.
