Chances and Chances, Inc. has been providing both shelter (residential) and non-residential services to victims of domestic/family violence in all its forms for over 30 years. We serve Livingston County (and surrounding counties as needed). We are a licensed program with certification from the NYS Office of Children and Family Services. in 2008 we expanded our services to assist with issues of Homelessness in our communities. This was a "natural" progression as many homeless individuals are homeless due to issues of domestic/family violence (among other things).
Our mission is to empower individuals impacted by Domestic/Family Violence and/or Homelessness to enable life changes leading to freedom from abuse and greater self-sufficiency.
Chances and Changes, Inc. provides a comprehensive continuum of services 24/7 to both residential and non-residnetial clients. These services include but are not liomited to:
