Building new lives
beyond prison walls.
Our transitional home provides safe and supportive housing for women who are transitioning from prison to the community. In addition to housing up to six women at a time, this space gives clients an opportunity to belong again. Our home:
I became a client while incarcerated at the Mecklenburg County Jail. I was sick and tired of the life I was living: in and out of jail and prison, being away from my kids and just going nowhere in life. I got connected with Changed Choices, got a mentor and a host of pen pals: ladies praying for me and giving me a sense of belonging. I came to the Changed Choices home on April 21, 2014. I love my home! I walk in the house, and there’s just a sense of peace. I haven't had a place to call home in almost 10 years. Today I’m at a point in my life where I stand on morals, values, and I actually have goals. God is the head of my life. Without Changed Choices, I don’t know where I would be today. This program has given me the motivation, strength and will power to be the woman I am today.
