A Chance In Life

A Chance In Life began its mission in 1945, in the aftermath of World War II when vast numbers of orphans and vulnerable children were left living on the streets of Italy by the war, and Monsignor John Patrick Carroll-Abbing was determined to do something for them. His decision to dedicate himself to their wellbeing defined the course of his life’s work and founded in New York what would become A Chance In Life. A Chance In Life is a nonprofit organization exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of Title 26 of the United States Code. A Chance In Life is a funding agency that provides support through partnerships with local nonprofit organizations in Bolivia, Colombia, Ethiopia, Italy, India, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru, who work with at-risk children and youth. A Chance In Life’s grants advance five Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): SDG2, SDG3, SDG4, SDG5 and SDG13; and promote the a Positive Youth Development (PYD) approach.
