Mission Statement

Program Mission

Another Chance mission is to empower individuals by giving them opportunities to help others while helping themselves and building a stronger community

Description

Another Chance is a faith-based non-profit program that serves men, women and children who reside in the Greater Cleveland community. The organization is established as a way to get needed clothing, furniture, appliances, housewares and toys into the hands of individuals at no cost to them. Many households have these items to share. Those donating often need help with pick-up and delivery, Donors are pleased that their donations will be given to those in need at no cost. In 1990 under the leadership of Pastor Walter J. Clark Sr. and Missionary Barbara Anderson the movement began to make these resources available to those most in need living in our communities.

Another Chance of Ohio is a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to provide high quality homes for low- income people. Another Chance will never operate as just another housing facility. Neither is it the will of Another Chance that any of our homes be considered as just another "house" but, rather it is our will that they be considered a real "home." Consequently it is not our desire to put several families in a home but rather--- try to nurture and encourage one family at a time. It is our goal to equip our residents with resources that will sustain them for a lifetime.

JANIE’S HOME (Wells Fargo Donation) Janie’s Home is a home for a family that is trying to escape domestic violence. This home is named for the sister of the Director. Janie experienced her own struggles to escape domestic violence and find the serenity that was inside her. The home is another chance for a family to recapture the magi that is within them. We give flowers a chance to blossom, and butterflies a chance to fly. PETE’S PLACE(CitiMortgage Donation) Pete’s Place is located at 1436 East 95th near the VA hospital. The home is named for Specialist E4 Sylvester (Pete) Williams III. Specialist Williams enlisted in the Army in 1966. He honorably served until he was discharged in 1969. Pete’s Place is designed to give an opportunity to veterans that have struggled with homelessness and job loss another chance. MAMA CROCKETT’S HOME (Third Federal Savings and Loan Partnership) Edna Mae Crockett was a foster parent to many youth that grew up in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood. Her home was a place that when going through turmoil in their life; people would stop; seek shelter, rest, food, clothing and encouragement. The home now located at 3435 East 76 th Street is dedicated in her honor as a home for foster care youth that have aged out of the system. *Another Chance of Ohio does not receive any local or federal funding. All services are provided for by your generous financial support.
