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.
What We Do
"Helping women build new lives."
Changed Choices is a non-profit organization that provides a range of support services to female inmates in local, state and federal systems. Inmates who continue a relationship with us throughout their incarceration, and who demonstrate a high capacity for complete rehabilitation will be offered additional support upon release while facing the extraordinary challenges of transition.
Why We Do It
"Lives changed, choices changed."
The hard fact is this:
Changed Choices provides a powerful local alternative. Our clients have remarkable success building new, better lives after prison. Less than 4% of our women return to jail - making Changed Choices a leader in providing support to women who have been incarcerated and come home to Mecklenburg County.
"It takes a community to change a community."
Changed Choices succeeds by helping our clients develop their strengths while we holistically attend to each woman's individual needs. We rely heavily on volunteers and donors to help us meet those needs. We invite you to join this radical and effective effort to help women make new choices leading to self-sustained, healthy and productive lifestyles.
