Second-Life Receives Non-Profit Status

Thursday, November 8, 2012

Second Life of Chattanooga, which promotes awareness and partnerships to end human trafficking, is now an officially recognized non-profit entity  

"Members of the greater Chattanooga community have always understood and supported our mission to provide a voice for voiceless children and adults held in human sex trafficking,” said Jerry Redman, Second Life senior partner. “And now, Second Life’s non-profit status will allow donor’s gifts to be tax deductible.”

For the past two years, Second Life of Chattanooga has been a project partner with the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, a partnership that allowed non-profit donations to be distributed to Second Life.  

“We are deeply grateful to the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga for their support of Second Life,” said Terri Self, Second Life senior partner. “We look forward to an on-going relationship with them as this new chapter opens up for Second Life. We’re also so thankful for BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and Pantheon Capital Management’s generous in-kind donations, which have helped us set up and furnish our office space.” 

Second Life’s new mailing address is P.O. Box 25485, Chattanooga, TN 37422. Donations can be mailed there, or made online at secondlifechattanooga.org.  

Second Life of Chattanooga is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending human trafficking in the greater Chattanooga area. Through partnerships with other community organizations, Second Life works to champion hope and justice for the 300,000 children at risk for sexual exploitation and slavery in the United States annually.
