Second Chance Homes


“Second chance is an incredible organization. When my brother hit rock bottom and no one was able to help him, Second Chance helped him start his life over again and gave him a safe, supportive home where he could clean up and rebuild his self esteem. My brother eventually became a house dad, gaining important skills, and was able to obtain his masters degree during his time there. Second chance saved my brother’s life, and I am forever grateful.”

“Perfect place for maintaining sobriety and helping get life back on track. Staying here for 18 months helped set the foundation for my recovery and the peace I have found within myself. The accommodations themselves are way above par for a recovery home. The two houses I stayed at were kept in great condition, with Internet/Cable and all the fixings that anyone needs to feel at home. House meetings conducted during the week to maintain a sense of community and responsibility. Would highly recommend staying here if you or someone you care about is fighting the battle.”

“This is the best value in a recovery home, I have lived with three local San Jose recovery homes, and my time at Second Chance Sobriety Homes has been the best for me. At Second Chance you can surround yourself with people who are doing the work that is necessary to stay sober. There is plenty of space, and just enough structure without there being too many rules. Low client to manager ratio. Lots of recovery.Nobody gets sober without help, I just needed that little bit of help, and this is a good place for it.”

“What can I say that hasn’t been said already? This place is great. I’ve got a ton of love for the people who run the operations and the clients they serve. They provide a stress free, well maintained environment so I can develop in my sobriety and as an individual.”
