Who We Are

HELPING CONNECT EX-OFFENDERS
WITH BUSINESSES IN IOWA

At Second Chance Placement, we recognize that decisions have consequences. The individuals we represent have been there and are now looking for an opportunity to return to a normal life. Each year, approximately 6000 Iowans are released from correctional institutions looking to move on.

Second Chance Placement serves as a conduit between offenders reentering the workforce and employers willing to give them a second chance.
