Funding Partners

Every revenue source helps Second Growth continue to offer counseling and advocacy services to all clients, regardless of their ability to pay, as well as enabling Second Growth to develop new programs and models for adolescent counseling.

Many well-endowed institutions and organizations have been forced to cut back on services because of steep declines in the value of their endowments, but this is not true for Second Growth: all our income goes to providing the services this agency is well known for, and none goes to service debt or replenish a depleted endowment.

Second Growth counseling provides young clients who are in crisis with a unique level of support. This can include staff availability at school, home, jail, an agency hearing, or a court. The support Second Growth offers, and the support we seek in return, helps to create a client-agency-community partnership that is highly unusual in the field of adolescent services. Second Growth receives funding from diverse sources:

  • Contributions from individuals
  • Grants from foundations
  • Corporate philanthropy
  • Fees and contracts for professional development services

Donations from individuals, families, and businesses

Every client Second Growth helps has family members employed locally, who are directly affected by absenteeism that often results when an adolescent gets into a crisis situation at school or in the legal system. More and more local companies know that Second Growth has helped a family member of someone on their payroll, and these companies are among the first to experience the positive economic impact of Second Growth’s effective interventions.
