"We work together to ensure that these deserving women are given the opportunities they need... we will see destructive cycles broken while lives and futures are changed!"
The goal of Changed Choices is to help incarcerated women understand they are unique and valuable individuals. They give their clients hope by providing the support system, training, spiritual foundation and sense of worth that will allow them to make wise choices as they transition back into society.
Changed Choices' clients have remarkable success building new, better lives after prison. Less than 4% of the women that participate in the program return to jail. Their low recidivism rate is largely due to the approach of working with clients during incarceration, well in advance of their release.
Through grace and determination, Changed Choices clients overcome their past and present obstacles. They become role models to their children, productive employees and inspiring members of their community. Click here to read their success stories.
