All of us make unfortunate choices. But when bad choices land a woman in jail or prison - separated from her children, her parents, her work, her life - time behind bars can serve as a wake-up call. And when women hear that call and open their hearts and minds to a new way
of life, Changed Choices steps in.
Women in Changed Choices succeed by developing their strengths within a network of holistic support. We rely heavily on volunteers and donors to help us meet wide-ranging needs. We invite you to join us in the journey with women working hard to build healthy, productive new lives!
As followers of Christ, we empower currently and recently incarcerated women to achieve lasting, positive change through programming and personalized mental, emotional, physical and spiritual support.
Through grace and determination, Changed Choices clients overcome their past and present obstacles. They become role models to their children, productive employees and inspiring members of our community. We are proud of the resilient, hard-working women we work with!
