Screening highlights nonprofit

RANCHO SANTA FE —Rancho Santa Fe residents were treated to a private screening of “Get to Work,” a groundbreaking Sundance Channel original documentary-series featuring San Diego’s own Second Chance. The viewing event at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe gave community members an unfiltered, uncompromising look at the nonprofit’s job readiness training program and comprehensive wrap-around services. San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis delivered a special welcome, followed by speeches from Second Chance employees and two of the heroes featured in the film.

Second Chance, founded in 1993, is the only nonprofit in the field that delivers workforce training programs, supported by comprehensive wrap-around services that include job placement, housing, mental health and financial literacy, all focused on getting people off the streets and into employment.

Since its inception, Second Chance has graduated more than 5,000 individuals, most of who are now working and paying taxes.
