Since we operate a high paced, physically demanding environment our residents must be in reasonably good health to be fully engaged in the program and be able to keep pace with the rigorous schedule.
Our open-ended program offers vocational training, education, peer counseling and mentoring, leadership training and transitional services.
Our program is unique in that we are the only 2 year program for women in the tristate that incorporates a trauma-informed holistic approach to recovery focusing on the whole person- mind, body, and spirit.
We provide access to state certified counselors and medical providers that utilize medication assisted treatment to ease withdrawal symptoms. The primary goal of the program is to reduce the isolation a person feels from the community and from each other, by teaching the resident how to live productive crime-free, drug-free lives by regaining their self-worth lives into lives full of purpose and dignity.
Our emphasis is on behavior and on learning how to live a life of honesty, empathy, and accountability. We are a peer community for learning life skills.
Our residents represent several social problems and yet they provide solutions to one another's challenges.
There are no distinctions in the backgrounds of residents and leaders other than more time and experience living in the community and influencing others to change their lives. Most have been in and out of jail and/or prison repeatedly and ultimately left hopeless for a decent life. Our leaders are living examples of the efficacy of our program.
Using our process of each one helping the other, we solve problems such as generations of poverty, habitual criminal behavior, lack of job skills, severe substance abuse, and homelessness.
We help our residents with self-esteem, trusting others, tolerance for discomfort, coping with feelings, controlling their impulses, dealing with authority, communication skills and productivity.
We utilize one-on-one mentoring and training, groups such as Corrective Thinking, Safe People and Boundaries.
For our women integration back into society involves relearning or re-establishing healthy functioning, skills and values as well as regaining physical and emotional health.
