  • Imagine facing life without hope, isolated and alone.
  • Imagine growing up believing that no one cares.
  • Imagine feeling that your life is at a dead end.

The people we serve at THE PROGRAM for Women & Families don’t imagine these feelings. They live them every day. They are out-of-school youth struggling to find their place in the world, incarcerated women and men, and the children of adults involved in the criminal justice system. They are part of our community yet often forgotten.

 At THE PROGRAM for Women & Families, we are dedicated to creating a safe community by providing youth, adult offenders and their families with opportunities to build healthy, productive lives. Underlying everything we do is the belief that all individuals should be treated with dignity and respect and when given the opportunity, are capable of making positive change in their lives and meaningful contributions to society.

For more than 30 years, THE PROGRAM for Women & Families has created positive change, teaching fundamental life skills and bringing hope to thousands of individuals. Each year, we serve more than one thousand individuals and impact countless more. Our services help to reduce crime and delinquency and positively impact the children of offenders.

In spite of these strides, our vision of a safe community for all is not yet a reality. Please, join us as we create positive change in our community. Imagine the difference we can make together.
