The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify and establish potential funding sources, and write a grant proposal to fund a program that would assist women who had been previously incarcerated by providing job readiness skills and tools for employability. The proposed program would focus on areas such as: reentry services, education, vocational training and employment. In addition, the program will also focus on providing a spectrum of skills training addressing stress management, money management, socialization skills, and environmental awareness. The program was created with the gender specific needs of these women in mind.
The objective of the program would be to prevent recidivism by offering assistance with employment opportunities and employment sustainability. The Rosenberg Foundation was selected as the best available funding source for this project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
