Our Mission

The Women’s Wellness Foundation offers tools and connections to help women who are released from prison avoid recidivism by offering transitional housing, essential personal care items, programs that emphasize healthy relationships, education, work opportunities, and life skills. We act as a gateway to a life of continued optimism and self-assurance. We think that women’s reentry and recovery present particular problems that are best handled in a single-sex setting that encourages candor and openness and is led by women who have successfully navigated comparable situations.

Our Vision

Our goal is for all women in reentry and recovery to have access to resources that address their basic needs and provide peer support, thereby removing obstacles to a smooth return to society. The recidivism rate for women returning to prison must be zero.
