What We Do
Serving holistically from incarceration through transition…
The Comprehensive Approach to Reentry Effectiveness engages women during their incarceration, and upon release supports them through the challenges of transition (housing, employment, rehabilitation).
Phase One: Inmate Support
While in Jail (the facility at which women await trial or serve short sentences)
Our women are provided with:
While in Prison (the facility to which women are assigned to complete their sentence)
Our women are provided, in addition to support received in prison, with:
Phase Two: Transitional Support
Once they are released from prison, women come face-to-face with the difficult challenge of reestablishing their new life after incarceration. Starting from the ground up, they must rebuild all that they once knew. This requires a great deal of support and encouragement. Through our comprehensive transition program, Changed Choices seeks to help women move successfully from incarceration back into the community by meeting their emotional, physical, financial and spiritual needs.
Changed Choices’ staff works with clients throughout their transition in the following area:
We are committed to helping women recognize and understand the past and present issues that caused them to make negative choices; develop their decision making abilities, self-awareness, and strengths; and grow into their highest potential.
It is our hope that we will provide guidance and direction in an environment fostered by forgiveness that leads to a sense of responsibility and ultimately changed lives.
