SELF-WORTH. SELF-RELIANCE. SELF-DISCIPLINE. By its very nature incarceration creates a stigma of shame, guilt, and an environment full of limitations -limited connections, limited space, and of course, limited freedom.
The Center for Women in Transition helps incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women re-enter society with a sense of dignity and pride. Our job is to walk with her from the time she enters our doors until she has the strength, courage, and stability she needs to move forward.
Over the last 10 years, we have changed the lives of more than 2,000 women by offering them the tools and resources they need to be successful in their new lives. We are committed to our role as a primary source of healing, hope, and restoration for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women.
Our work in the prison and county jail systems providing three-classes weekly gives voice to voiceless and hope to the hopeless. We are recognized by District and Federal judges in Pulaski County as well as state and federal probation/parole officers.
Our program services women with parenting, domestic violence, anger management, empowerment principles, and relapse prevention classes and services geared specifically for each client. We have successfully served women that were awaiting sentencing and were placed on probation in lieu of prison. Our goal is to empower women with the tools to be successful from the time they arrive until they have the strength, courage, and stability to move forward.
