Our Approach

Our initial baseline assessment indicates that incarcerated women suffer layers of trauma. For example, some report losing their parents, siblings, and friends at an early age. These childhood circumstances and experiences exposed them to unfavorable and risky behaviors that led to incarceration.  To sustain the correctional and rehabilitation efforts and build resilience, self-esteem, and boost the confidence of incarcerated women, Resilient Woman implements a series of programs; including pre-release trauma management and post-release mentoring with an aim of providing women with psycho-social and emotional support to enable them to reconnect with their families and the communities to which they have to return.
