At our meeting on July 9, 2018, we chose to support Women’s Wellness Foundation as our designated agency. Women’s Wellness Foundation provides programs and services for women returning from prison. They have a residential facility and offer a peer to peer group support as well. It is largely a volunteer organization. We have supported Women’s Wellness Foundation in the past, which helped them to purchase and renovate a residence for women returning from prison. Our funds will support scholarships to allow women a period of “free” rent when they first return from prison until they can get settled and find a job; it will also fund adventure therapy programs which give women an opportunity to get out of the urban environment for hiking, kayaking, and camping.
