Did You Know …

Second Sense has been certified by Points of Light as a Service Enterprise! We completed a rigorous assessment, over 20 hours of training and extensive internal planning and change to better integrate our volunteers in our day-to-day operations. By achieving this level of excellence and certification, we are able to leverage the time and talents of volunteers.  Together, we are serving more clients.

Less than 15% of organizations nationwide are characterized as Service Enterprises.
