Citadel Economic Development Corporation was originally incorporated in 2004 for the nonprofit purposes of assisting "at risk" individuals with the opportunity to access affordable housing, career and education services. As a result of growth and an expansion of services, we now operate under several subsidiaries and dba's. Two of our major subsidiaries are Second Chances Housing Corporation ("SCHC") and Second Chances Employment & Entrepreneurship Service Center ("SCEES"). We also operate Second Chances Financial Service Center ("SCFS"). To get more detailed information regarding each entity please click on the respective links.
