The obstacles faced by women upon release from incarceration are so overwhelming that a productive life seems impossible to achieve.
During 12 months of residency at SVdP’s Catherine’s Center, women recently released from jail or prison work intensely to understand the root causes of their incarceration, develop new coping skills, and reconnect with family. The women participate in emotional counseling, substance abuse rehabilitation, as well as vocational, educational and spiritual programs.
