The CEO-CFO Speaker Series Featuring Second Chance

Driving down Russell Street on the way out of Baltimore, it’s hard to miss the giant orange warehouse sign: WHAT IS AND WHAT CAN BE. This is the unofficial mission statement for the non-profit Second Chance:  Retrain*Reclaim*Renew
Second Chance (SC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides people, materials and the environment with a second chance. They deconstruct buildings and homes, salvage usable materials and make those available to the public through their 200,000 square feet of retail space.  With the revenue generated, they provide job training and workforce development for those with employment obstacles in the Baltimore region.
Second Chance is a social enterprise with a true triple-bottom-line focus.  That means everything they do is:
  • environmentally sound,
  • socially responsible, and
  • financially viable.
Mark Foster Founder and President of SC will overview the mission, Job training, accomplishments and will explain the business model makes financial sense for everyone, offering significant tax advantages to donors and significant savings to consumers. The result is the creation of living wage jobs for those who've faced vocational challenges.
