Second Chances work with 2 particular people groups. Prisoners and their families. Their focus is to bring hope to them both in their present situation and for their future.
Lift Board Games is focused in giving a lift to the children of the prisoners through one of their childrens’ programs.
This and their other programs are custom-designed to equip prisoners’ children to create better futures for themselves.
Birthday Stars provides presents to children (whose birthdays are sometimes forgotten) on behalf of their imprisoned parent, reminding them they are valued and loved on their special day.
[I have copied a letter from one of the their quarterly newsletters that was sent from an appreciative mum who was able to connect with her daughter through their Birthday Stars program….Chris]
To the donors of the Second Chances Birthday Stars
Thankyou for all the gifts for Birthdays and Christmas you have provided my daughter over the past 4 years. She has loved every gift. Truly appreciate you making this option available for us parents in prison. My daughter also enjoyed the camp , so thankyou.
