Second Chance At Renewing Self (S.C.A.R.S.) provides aftercare services for survivors of intimate partner and domestic violence. Through grassroots and holistic efforts, we are here to support those who have experienced abuse. We offer workshops and events that provide encouragement and support to empower survivors to move forward in their healing process.

Our desire in the near future is to open a resource center in the city of Richmond, VA to provide wrap around and support services. Future services will include career readiness and workforce development programs, counseling, and transitional housing to help survivors become self-sufficient and transition from surviving to thriving.
