Abstract (Summary)

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 formerly incarcerated.

The program was created with the special needs of these women in mind. The program would target areas such as: education, employment and vocational training, individual and group counseling to address issues that had not been addressed while incarcerated. The objective of the program would be to prevent recidivism, receive mentoring from former participants, and become gainfully employed. A needs assessment was done through an extensive literature review, which determined the design of the program and targeted specific areas of need.

A search for potential funding sources via the Internet and various grant databases was performed. The Justice, Equality, Human Dignity, and Tolerance (JEHT) Foundation was selected as the best available funding source for this project. A grant was then written to support a reentry, reintegration and recidivism reduction program for the clients of Women in Non-Traditional Employment Roles (WINTER) agency. Actual submission for funding for this program was not required for the completion of this project.
