William Umansky, Central Florida attorney and founding partner of Umansky Law Firm, recognized the importance of education in breaking the cycle of poverty. While operating a successful law practice focused on giving individuals second chances, he saw children suffering as a result of their parents’ mistakes and subsequent incarceration. He knew their chances of going to college were slim to none.
Wanting to give back to his community, in 2011 Umansky, established the Second Chance of Florida Foundation. He is particularly compelled to help those students who continue doing well in school despite lifes hurdles.
The Second Chance of Florida Foundation (SCFF) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization established to fund college tuition and book scholarships for students who are demonstrating academic excellence despite personal, economical and financial hardship.
SCFF funds these scholarships each year though grants, social fundraisers, and other activities. It also partners with other like-minded, non-profit organizations to reward exceptional youth and give them the second chance they deserve.
We want to reward those kids that still strive to be the best despite the difficult circumstances they face and that they did not create. Everyone deserves a second chance and kids who can succeed despite personal hardship deserve it even more. William Umanksy
