We are a non-profit resale shop serving all of Fayette County.  We are run by a coalition of seven local churches representing different denominations.  The majority of the work is performed by unpaid volunteers from the member churches, as well as the community at large.  These churches receive no monies or in-kind donations from Second Chance for the service hours their parishioners donate. 


Second Chance accepts donations of clothing, shoes, household goods, furniture, etc., in good, working, usable condition from the public, and resells items at very low prices in order to benefit the underprivileged members of our community.  Profits from the sale of these items  are distributed to local charities, which have applied for funding and been selected by the Second Chance Emporium's Board of Directors.





Second Chance is fortunate to have approximately half of the money needed to build our new facility, and we have begun a capital campaign to raise more funds.  If you would like to help, here are a couple of ways you can contribute!

New Building Update!

As many of you know, at the end of August 2017, Second Chance was completely destroyed by the floodwaters of Hurricane Harvey.  Its buildings, along with all its contents, were a total loss, rendering Second Chance unable to operate there as a resale store.

We have moved to a temporary location at 851 S. Reynolds.  In the meantime, we have purchased 5.5 acres right next to our temporary location (which will be the future site of a bigger and better AMEN!).  Construction has begun on a new facility that should take us well into the future!
