Second Chance Program | 2021

We were fortunate enough to present Eduardo, Blanco, and their 4 beautiful children with the keys to their new home. When in your car or motels, saving up money for rent and a deposit on a new home is an incredibly difficult feat, in addition to having to take care of your children. OGS paid for their first and last month’s rent, provided them with groceries and games, and even furnished the house that gets to become their home. We are so proud of and thankful for the efforts made by our team, volunteers, and the community for helping make this become a reality! A special thank you to Family Promise and Anthony for working closely with us to make this happen.

We have been searching for a family to help support, gifting them with a "Second Chance" at life.
