Review for Transitional Options For Women, Roanoke, VA, USA
This non profit was opened by a Female Navy Veteran. Dorothy Mae Owsley is the sole owner and founder of TOFW. Transitional Options for WoMEN is the only organization in the state of Virginia that provide pre-release training and mentoring for persons preparing for release from incarceration. Part of the pre-release program is preparing them to transitional back into society, homes, families, relationship(s) and work life. This organization partners with community based service providers to address the whole body, mind and soul needs of persons leaving incarceration. From emotional intelligence to reunification and housing the needs are great. As a non profit we have relied heavily on donations and most often more than 80% of the financial needs are met by this Disabled Female Veteran from her own retirement funds.
I have recently joined the team to coach, mentor and house and influence positive change for this targeted group of persons. Financial help is needed to continue to help these persons become contributing citizens.
