In choosing to enter a Second Wind program you are also choosing to begin a relationship with Second Wind staff and volunteers and to focus on being a good neighbor in ways further described if you follow this link:

Second Wind Program Description

Second Wind is a supportive permanent housing program that aims to help formerly homeless individuals to heal and recovery from their homelessness, work towards individualized goals that help achieve a restored life, and to eventually assist in securing more traditional permanent housing setting. The Second Wind program employes program staff and engages with community volunteers to offer human connection and people to build relationships aimed at growing your support system and helping you achieve your individualized goals and dreams. The Second Wind program aims to support you specifically with goals that relate to our five pillars of success. Achieving these goals, along with the guidelines in our good neighbor policy, will help you secure stable housing and internal resiliency.
