For many years I have supported New Entra Casa. I have met many women who have successfully completed this program and have gone on to lead productive lives. The "before" and "after" stories are amazing! I highly recommend this home.

This is a home from women in transition from prison, which was started by United Methodist Women in 1969. They have a close relationship with Los Colinas (women's prison in San Diego, California). Parole officers first screen looking for women who are motivated to change their lives. The woman is then screened by New Entra Casa Director or Counselor to determine selection. The home is in a residential area in North Park. The home has 6 beds - 2 women to each room. Learning to live together and developing skills in homemaking and other life skills are provided. The counselors are certified drug and alcohol counselors as most residents have addictive issues. The Director of the program, graduated from the program over 20 years ago. They provide cognitive therapy, food and nutritional assistance, budgeting and financing and other educational classes. Interface with county agencies to assist in job training and other needs in place. Women leave the home when ready to be independent but no specific length of stay is required.. The home is privately funded by United Methodist Women, other civic groups and grants.
