Who are we?
Second Chance Kids is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to supporting families of Grey and Bruce Counties who have a child requiring lengthy out-of-town hospitalization.
Second Chance Kids was founded in 1988 by members of several community social service organizations. We offer financial, emotional, and advocacy support to help families in need. Since our formation, we have been able to provide assistance to thousands of local families.
- reduce financial burden and stress on families
- enhance the opportunity for children to have the natural supports of parents/guardians during hospitalization, thus reducing the child’s emotional trauma
- reduce family stress
provide related resources/services that may assist the family
