About Us

2nd Chance Solutions, Inc. is a non-profit community-based organization, which was founded March, 25, 2009 by Athanasios Karathanasis, the organization’s Executive Director.  Mr. Karathanasis spent many years in the field of real-estate development.  Through this experience, he learned firsthand that just providing shelter without the provision of support services did not adequately address homelessness.  While developing 2nd Chance Solutions’ first homeless program, which serves homeless adult males, Mr. Karathanasis envisioned a “home” where the homeless could learn and develop skills necessary for permanent, self-sufficient living.  2nd Chance Solutions provides temporary transitional housing to a specific number of persons for whom we realistically guarantee an array of needed supportive services, directly and through a comprehensive referral network of government agencies and non-profits with proven track records of helping the homeless and others in need.
