2nd Chance Corporation is a 501(c)3 non profit corporation, who acquired the property at 1660 100th Avenue, Lakeview, Michigan in Hinton Township. The Board of Directors of 2nd Chance has started a Christian Retreat Center on the property. It will be available to churches and organizations for short term gatherings, such as youth group meetings, women and men retreats, and many other events that would benefit from a Christian setting. The house could also serve as a location for Cowboy Church, Christian musical events, and many other Christian gatherings. The property will require updating, remodeling, and renovation to reach that goal, with the vision to recreate the appearance that it had over one hundred years ago.

2nd Chance Grace House also will be a rehab center where teens and adults will be able to satisfy their court mandated community service hours. 2nd Chance has worked with youth and adults in Kent County for the past 5 years through the community service program. The youth and adults have committed lesser severe crimes, mostly drug and alcohol charges. 2nd Chance is not qualified to handle those that
have committed severe crimes. The community service workers have been mandated by the courts to perform a court determined amount of hours of community service to satisfy their obligation. These community service workers would be able to satisfy their obligation at this property in many ways such as grounds maintenance, preparing the inside of the house for the guests, cutting, splitting, and stacking wood for the wood boiler, which will be the heat source for the house, and many other tasks required at the property. Because of the location of the property, 2nd Chance will be able to work with community service
workers from Northern Kent, Mecosta and Montcalm counties.

The facility as planned will serve dual purposes; to supply a Christian facility for groups to use for their Christian retreats and gatherings and will be a great location for the community service workers to complete their court mandated obligation.

The 2nd Chance Grace House Board of Directors appreciates your interest and support in this project.  The 2nd Chance Corporation, an organization that provides instruction and guidance in life skills to youth and adults, admits participants of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
