Correctional Facility Groups
In 2018, our Outreach Program launched with survivor-led groups in correctional facilities. These groups are designed to support women where they are at, providing safety and a sense of belonging.
As women meet each week, definitions are given to life experiences and women are able to identify areas of exploitation in their life. This allows each woman to understand her story deeper and seek proper support that is trauma-informed and focused on recovery from exploitation once she is able to leave the correctional facility.
It is our hope that through these groups, we would be able to support more women in starting a journey of recovery, helping to break the cycle of exploitation earlier in her life. Along with this, we are able to help government agencies understand the systemic issues that keep women trapped in the cycle between exploitation and incarceration.
We currently operate groups in the state of Massachusetts. You can support these groups and our hope of expansion to other states by giving today.
