Delisa Herbert runs and owns a 501c3 nonprofit ministry from her Second Chance Thrift store in Oklahoma City.

This is not just a simple thrift store, like the personality of it's owner, it is about changing lives for the better, in a remarkable and loving manner that will amaze you and bring a smile to your face.

"My life story is the whole purpose of Second Chances." Delisa

DeIisa describes her early life as being born into sickness:
Family incest and molestation. Eventually sold to a pimp by her mother at age 13 she began a life of prostitution. She became an addict and ended up in prison. She was shot and stabbed multiple times and survived. She was high for 30 years and each of the three times she went into prison and was released she planned to do the same thing again because it was all she knew.

She shares her "wow" moment that changed her life forever.

Now, as a survivor of domestic violence and human trafficking and sex trafficking, homelessness, addiction, she is paying it forward for those in need in her community.

Every day through her store she is helping people in need with transitionary housing, finding a job, transportation to a job, and feeding between 50 and 75 people each day with the help of some amazing volunteers.

To volunteer, you can call (405) 470-6530

At the time of the interview, there were three homeless camps bulldozed in Oklahoma City, and are in need of camping tents, sleeping bags, food, and the things they need to start over.

They are also in need of donations like furniture and appliances that help pay the rent for Second Chances Thrift Store. This allows them to fund their efforts.
