About The Owner

Derrick Forston, a Haines City, Florida native, is the founder and owner of Second Chance Housing, LLC. Second Chance Housing is a housing program that creates pathways out of homelessness by providing a clean and safe living environment for homeless adults. A compassionate man of faith, before venturing into Second Chance Housing, Derrick worked as a social worker and discharge planner at a behavioral health facility in Kissimmee, FL. In this role, Derrick assigned and placed adults in group homes after discharge from the behavioral health facility. After realizing not only the limited number of available housing options but also the harsh and unsanitary living conditions in most placement group homes, Derrick knew he had to do something to help address this housing crisis.​

After two years of research and educating himself, Derrick launched his first independent living facility in October 2018. Since that time, Derrick has been and continues to be a passionate advocate for changing the lives of homeless individuals by providing housing. Today, Second Chance Housing, in partnership with Forston Consultants, has over 260 Independent Living Facilities™ throughout 16 States.

​With over a decade of working experience in mental health and substance abuse clients, his passion goes beyond providing housing to the homeless; he also believes in enriching the lives of others through knowledge and opportunities. As a result, he serves as a mentor and expert consultant sharing his extensive expertise with business owners, social service agencies and other community organizations on how to start and operate their own Independent Living Facility™ through Forston Consultants, LLC.
