Second Chance Apartment Sponsors

Make a life-changing difference for one family by becoming a Second Chance Apartment sponsor and, if you choose, getting involved personally with your family.

Second chance apartment sponsors have the opportunity to make a life-changing difference for one family. The sponsors provide $10,000 of support each year for two years, covering the family’s rent for those two years. During this time, families use a portion of their monthly income to pay off credit and cover other critical expenses instead of rent so that they can gain stability. Second Chance Apartment Sponsors can be individuals, congregations, businesses or combinations of several congregations or businesses working together.

Sponsors can get involved with the families personally, providing mentoring and other support. There are also additional opportunities such as helping to furnish an apartment. You can join your family at our annual Families Moving Forward Celebration, held every August, to celebrate their success with them.

Please contact Peggy Halloran by email at or by phone at 608-294-7998 ext. 311 with any questions or to become a Second Chance Apartment Sponsor now.
