Overview


Mission Statement

Second Chance Orange County comes alongside low-income, recovering drug or alcohol addicts and/or homeless individuals, helping them to reclaim their identities as contributing members of our community by providing them with individualized supportive services including, but not limited to: job placement, life skills, job skills, mentoring, one-on-one coaching, mental health therapy, mentoring, resume creation, and case management.

Background Statement

After a successful career in sales and bank consulting, during which she grew to be the most sought-out coach and sales trainer in California, our founder Deb Johnson became aware of the devastating effect that drug addiction and homelessness were having in her community of Orange County (OC). Putting her consulting company on hold, Deb moved to New York City, where she earned a Master’s Degree in Public Administration- Non-Profit Management from Columbia University. Upon returning to OC late in 2015, Deb met with all the major OC service providers and involved government officials to identify the county’s largest gap in services. Deb founded Second Chance Orange County (SCOC) to fill this gap.

Our team and our 51 volunteers have worked hard to generate the significant growth we’ve enjoyed. For the first year and a half of our operation, our new clients came only from past clients’ referrals, and we were entirely self-funded. We didn’t market to the community or receive monetary donations until late in 2017. Since then, we’ve been welcomed with open arms by homeless housing providers, mayors, elected officials, city staff, police, and mental health care professionals throughout the county. Our volunteers have donated over five thousand hours to SCOC, valued at over $121,000. We’ve received funding from over 100 private donors as well as over 10 grants, and we’ve helped 100 recovering addicts find employment, stability, and hope. We have relationships with the largest homeless providers and cities in the county, 211 and OC Mental Health.


Impact Statement

There is great URGENCY right now in SCOC’s work. The OC riverbed has been cleared out; homeless individuals who once lived there are now being funneled into hotels and temporary homeless shelters with no long-term accommodation plan. Our phone is ringing off the hook with new referrals from our collaborative partners. Because of the severity of the current situation, homeless individuals have become increasingly willing to get sober and desperate for our services. Without help from grants like this one, we will be forced to begin turning away perfectly suitable clients because we simply do not have the funding to support their healthy transition back into society.

From 2000 to 2015, the number of OC drug and alcohol-related overdose deaths increased by 82%. During 2013-2015, OC experienced an average of 682 drug/alcohol overdose deaths and 5,465 drug or alcohol-related hospitalizations per year. 54% of these deaths, and 41% of the hospitalizations, took place in the KP Anaheim Service Area. Drug-related hospital stays cost the taxpayers over $269 million every year. (OC Health Care Agency/Sheriff-Coroner Morbidity & Mortality Report-2017)

With our help, these numbers will drop as individuals who are otherwise left to their own devices receive the support they need to stay sober, pursue work and/or education, and reclaim their identities as productive members of society. 100% of the 36 clients we’ve served are still alive and have NOT used emergency rooms for drug or alcohol issues. 97% of the clients we’ve helped are employed and are NOT in jail.


Needs Statement

Many members of our target population are dual-diagnosis with other mental health issues. 80% are formerly incarcerated or court involved, and most have a sad history with killer drugs -- opiates, meth, and black tar heroin. As a result, most of our clients have contributed to the 5,465 drug or alcohol-related hospitalizations that take place every year in OC, and cost over $269 million every year (OC Health Care Agency/Sheriff-Coroner Morbidity & Mortality Report-2017).

Prior to their entry into our program, many of our clients are caught in a cycle of dependent behavior supported by criminal activity because their prior records severely hamper their employment options once they are straight. Poverty results, often paralyzing recovery efforts. Sadly, our clients’ isolation fuels hopelessness, leading to homelessness, crime, or death.

Clients we have helped include 2 Veterans, 2 individuals with HIV/AIDS, one Foster Care Institutionalized Client, and one Foster Care client. We’ve also served individuals who identify as Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender and persons with Disabilities.

Collaborations

Our collaborative partners include Mercy House Living Centers (under an official MOU), police officers and homeless liaisons, the Illumination Foundation’s Recuperative Care Facility, and several faith-based partners. Each of these partners is trained in our services and provides us with referrals. We do not do any street outreach to find clients, because the number of referrals we receive from OC homeless providers and current and/or past clients already exceeds our service capabilities on our current budget.
