Helping Women Restart their Lives after Release from Local Correctional Centers
Doors of Hope provides much needed mentoring and training for women who are nearing release from the Rutherford County Correctional Work Center. These women are non-violent offenders, seeking change in their life, and are nominated by the Correctional Staff to attend life skills classes up to 120 days before they are released from the Center. We offer hope and help to the ex-offender who chooses to embrace positive values and re-focus her life according to those values, changing her future from the inside out. By teaching values and life skills in prison and helping with reentry challenges upon release, we see recidivism rates reduced as ex-offenders learn to become responsible, respectable, contributing members of our community.
