Mission Statement

Second Chances' mission is to provide clothing to people in need, inform supporters about issues affecting our community and help people connect with local organizations or issues that resonate with their values, skills and personal experiences.

Description

At Second Chances, we specialize in clothing, and have the resources to collect, sort and store it, and then provide local service agencies with the specific clothing and supplies that their clients need. So many of us have overflowing closets - clothes that no longer fit, accessories that we never use, shoes that would look great on someone else - and we hope that someone else can put these things to good use.

Local organizations that serve homeless and lower income infants, youth and adults need clothing, shoes and accessories for their clients; however, they often lack the storage space, staffing and resources to be able to facilitate these donations. This is exacerbated when there is a mismatch between what is donated and when it is donated and what is needed: spring and summer clothing donated in the fall and winter; clothing for children and women when clothing for men is in short supply; sizes 6 and 40 when sizes 14 and 32 would fit; and prom dresses and t-shirts when work clothing is needed.

At Second Chances, we provide local homelessness, emergency assistance and anti-poverty organizations with the clothing their clients need, when they need it. By staying small and focused, we can effectively and efficiently serve hundreds of people in need in Cambridge and Somerville through their current service and housing providers.
