Our vision is to create quality homes for everyone and to be champions for supportive communities where people can not only survive but are empowered to live their best lives.



We create housing and supportive services that profoundly change the lives of our neighbors across the United States.



Our work requires passion for all humanity, inclusivity, equal opportunity, trust, justice, courage, and respect for our partners and neighbors.


A Forever Home for Every Child Movement 

According to the National Center on Family Homelessness, 2.5 million children in America – one in every 30 children – go to sleep without a home of their own each year.


Second Act Communities is leading the charge across the nation to end child homelessness with our “Forever Home for Every Child” Movement. Our focus is creating quality homes for children and their families, while simultaneously building supportive communities where people can not only survive but are empowered to live their best lives.
