Second Chance is a deconstruction and resale social enterprise in Baltimore, MD. The non-profit enterprise employs 165 workers recruited from hard to employ residents of Baltimore. It literally provides a second chance for people as well as building commodities. In this March 2017 report we find heartwarming and uplifting stories about their adventures in reuse. Thanks to Second Chance for sharing!

ILSR and Second Chance have been working partners since the enterprise opened in 2004 in downtown Baltimore.
