The purpose of this project is to assist women with housing as they transition from the prison system back into society. This grant proposal will establish a structured housing facility in a community familiar to women in order to reduce the recidivism noted frequently. This grant proposal is attempting to collaborate with the legal system to ensure a safe return to the community for women who served multiple years in prison and are reentering society. The grant proposal for the Sedona Transitional Home describes the goals and ways to reach those goals by providing resources, case management, collaborative efforts and brainstorming ideas to support women with mental health and medical health needs. The proposal also addresses areas to educate and enhance educational options for the targeted population. The goal is to target women between the ages of 26-40 years of age, focusing on the reunification with their children through a program called Wraparound while incorporating the Department of Social Services and the involved correctional agency. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
