The purpose of this study is to explore the health education needs of non-violent female offenders who are pregnant or parenting children and living in a community mothers program. Literature shows that adequate services and educational training such as parenting skills, job training and healthcare needs lack in most community mother programs leading to relapse.
A needs assessment conducted in a community mothers program for parenting female offenders, looked at the educational needs of participants and served to develop a curriculum of a series of health modules for participants in preparation for re-entry back into society. Group responses were collected and analyzed using descriptive statistics to measure knowledge and attitudes.
