Staff and volunteers provide evidence based classes and mentor programs to women serving at the Meckenburg County Detention Center (MCDC). Interested women can apply to become a Changed Choices client.
Our Pre-Release Program, two to three years before re-entry, lays the foundation for a successful transition. During this time, clients work with our Pre-Release Manager to create a Vision Plan focused on goals and action steps.
We continue journeying with clients as they return to the community. Our Re-Entry Manager and volunteers provide the tools and resources the women need for successful independent living in our community.
Our program along with partnerships in the community has made Changed Choices a leader in helping women build new lives beyond prison walls. Today, the very low recidivism rate continues to speak clearly to the effectiveness of the program.
