Crime & Law
6400 Minnesota Ave St. Louis MO 63111 USA
In 1993 women working in criminal justice and formerly incarcerated women focused on the challenges women face when being released from jail or prison for nonviolent offenses. In 1997 the Center for Women in Transition was established, modeled after an 8-year program in NY that has reduced recidivism to below 20% (compared to national average of 73%). Currently our recidivism rate for women in our mentoring program is less than 10%. Volunteer mentors are recruited, trained and supported to assist women in examining behavior, establishing goals for change and staying committed to their goals. Referrals are made to community resources for job training and placement, counseling, housing, childrens' resources and education.
