Second Mile desires to empower the community where the hopeless can find hope; where children can find love and laughter, where young men and women can look to the future with pride and eager anticipation rather than with fear and dread; where men and women of all ages can discover the depth and the breadth of Christ’s love.
The ultimate dream of Second Mile is to bring about, through Christ, reconciliation between all people: the rich and poor, the educated and uneducated, the fortunate and less fortunate.
Second Mile serves our community through three divisions: Pride for Parents, Second Mile Preschool, Parent Initiative and the Neighborhood Baby Thrift Store.
Parent Initiative began in 1993 after Second Mile staff and other community members recognized a need for increased parent involvement in our Title I schools in Huntsville, Alabama. With a goal to build relationships and community through the empowerment of parents, the Parent Initiative Program provides educational training, support and volunteer opportunities for parents in the schools.
