We offer an alternative to incarceration for women in the local community who have been charged with and/or convicted of nonviolent offenses. We partner with the local Court Services Unit, Drug Treatment Court Program, and Joint Mental Health Collaboration to refer individuals to our program.
Participants commit to a minimum of 90-days (with a recommended extension of 90 days), live full-time in a supervised community setting with other participants, and complete a life-recovery curriculum.
WHAT WE PROVIDE
Full-time Room & Board
Women in the program receive full-time access to room and board, including meals and related resources. Participants live together, sharing household chores and cooking responsibilities.
Life Recovery Program
The minimum 90-days requires participants to complete a cognitive-behavioral life-recovery curriculum that covers a wide range of topics in a group setting, from parenting education, to living with addiction, interpersonal communication, and anger management.
Individualized Case Management
All participants work one-on-one with a case manager to develop goals, determine a home plan, and address issues on an individual basis. Participants are also subject to random drug and alcohol screens.
Referrals to Community Resources
Case managers make referrals for participants who need outside resources such as licensed counseling, health care providers, peer support specialists, and community groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
Individuals will have access to employment advice, vocational training opportunities, and help with finding a nearby job.
