About Us

The Center for Women in Transition works with and on behalf of women, who have been incarcerated for nonviolent crimes, during and after release to assist them in making a transition back into their families and society. We, thereby, witness to society that a restorative approach to justice is more effective for women, their children and society as a whole than is a punitive approach.

We educate society and work toward alternative sentencing showing that it is possible through networking and mentoring to implement restorative justice and to reduce recidivism (those returning to jail) by effectively addressing the basic causes of crimes of poor women.
