Our Story



Second Helping is an initiative of I Am Second. Our goal is to care for those in need. We teamed up with the Takl app, to provide FREE home services for veterans, single parents, seniors and families in need.

Takl is like Uber or Lyft but instead of transportation they provide Handyman-Lawncare-House Cleaning-Junk Hauling and a variety of other services around the house.


Simply put: We strive to "Live Second" and bring hands-on help to families in need.

Those in need, request a service by filling out a brief on-line application. If approved, we give them a unique Second Helping "code" that pays for the job they need done. The customer/veteran/single parent/etc… orders the service they need done in the Takl app, on their phone. The Takl Providers are paid through the generous donations of others, and the person in need gets the job done for FREE!

Give Help. Give Hope. 



We were invited to sit down and chat with our friend, Nicole Cowan Buckley, host of the weekly radio program, Nashville by Nicole, on Nashville's Lightning 100. Check out the interview now to learn more about the heart of Second Helping! 



Inspiring the Revolution of Second.

We believe in the power of a story well told. The stories of real people and real lives, beautifully broken, human stories. Each tell of a different journey and a different struggle. But all tell the story of hope. 

Hope is not found in perfect people with perfect families. It cannot be seen in people who made all the right choices and found all the right answers. It’s found in the brokenness and the mess of real life. Hope is found when you are furthest from it, when you cannot see it or reach out and touch it. Hope is found in the darkness.

We believe the story of hope can change your life. Hope happens when you believe in a different story, a better telling of your purpose and place in life. We believe we tell that different story. It’s one that plays out through the raw stories of real people from every race, creed, and way of life who experienced God.

You are here for a reason. There is a story for you. A story like yours. Watch these stories in our films or read them on our blog. Whatever your struggle, you can find a story that speaks to you. Or talk to us. Call, chat, or email, 24 hours a day. 

Gather a group of friends to discuss the films. Start an I Am Second group through our app. Connect with us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
