Craine House has a special place in my heart. Their mission of providing women within the criminal justice system that have young children an opportunity to re-enter their community as good mothers, productive citizens and a positive role model is incredible! The success rate for women that participate in Craine House is far greater than the success rate within the typical penal system. Additionally, the children are much less likely to take on bad behavior than those children separated from their mothers and placed in foster care during the formative years of their life.

Craine House does all this at approximately 30% less cost than a traditional correctional program and foster care for the children.

Please help Craine House assist more families by joining with them as they grow to allow those women with children on the waiting list to participate in this life-changing experience and allow these families an opportunity to live good and productive lives in Indiana.
