Who We Are

Second Act/Scene 2 is a faith-based 501c3 organization providing our less fortunate community members with high-quality, professional counseling and social work services at reduced cost to those in need in the Fox Valley area and surrounding communities.

Our Mission

Compelled by God’s boundless love, we offer a safe, soothing environment where the under insured affected by mental illness and troubled lives can find hope, healing and regeneration.

We are fortunate to live in a thriving community where many enjoy prosperity. But mental illness knows no boundaries and many among us have reached a dead end, seeing no light at the end of the tunnel.

Second Act/Scene 2 offers light in dark places when resources are thin and all hope appears lost.

We provide those blessed with prosperity in our community with a chance to give back. Your donations enable us to continue our work to provide counseling services to those in need. Together we do make a difference! Read about our success stories here . . .

Mental Illness Affects All Of Us

Recently a client expressed frustration at the lack of quality counseling services for people who don’t have insurance and are of lesser financial means. This client is a recovering alcoholic. In her case, she has insurance that pays for a large piece of her ongoing treatment, however, in the local AA meetings she attends, she often hears of the struggles of other less fortunate people. She was delighted to hear about our Second Act/Scene2 services with its mission to treat individuals with the same high quality of care, no matter how much they can pay.

There are so many ways you can support us. Please consider helping with a donation today.

Through Your Generosity We Can Make A Difference!

All of us are touched by untreated mental illness and other life problems.  The effects are everywhere, causing us to deal with them daily.  Whether it be a college student who commits suicide, a deranged parent who kills their children, a family member quietly suffering from depression, the ADHD kid who can’t sit still in school, a co-worker wrestling with an addiction, or a neighbor struggling with anxiety.

The lack of quality counseling services for people who don’t have insurance and are of lesser financial means is devastating for many in our community who need help.

Through the generosity of those who partner with us, we can make a difference in the lives of our fellow neighbors. Just a $100 donation allows four more people to receive an initial clinical evaluation.
