At the Women’s Department, we recognize that transformation starts from within. Our commitment extends beyond the boundaries of our physical presence, as we actively engage with currently incarcerated women in California’s institutions. Through carefully designed programs, we empower women to embark on their unique journeys towards freedom, accountability, and self-discovery.
The Women’s Department proudly oversees and shapes the curriculum within women’s institutions in California, including CIW (Chino) and CCTRP Sac (Sacramento). These programs are rooted in the belief that meaningful change is possible when individuals are given the tools to reflect, grow, and redefine their paths.
Our programs are strategically designed to guide currently incarcerated women towards taking accountability for their actions and acknowledging the gendered pathways that led them into, and ultimately out of, incarceration. By addressing the root causes and societal factors that contribute to these pathways, we provide a foundation for genuine rehabilitation.
