This rating was published 07/01/2018 and includes data from FY2017, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Second Story, formerly Alternative House, founded in 1972, provides support to at-risk children, youth and families through counseling, shelter, crisis intervention and neighborhood outreach. Our programs recognize that families are interdependent and that a crisis or challenge facing one family member affects everyone. We therefore empower children, teens and families to work together and build on their strengths. Our programs include: Second Story for Teens in Crisis, Second Story for Young Mothers, Second Story for Homeless Youth, and Second Story in the Community.
