DO YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONES NEED RE-ENTRY SUPPORT?
At The Help in Kansas City, we are committed to providing an array of resources and helpful tools to formerly incarcerated/convicted women that can aid them with a productive transition into their community.
We recognize formerly incarcerated/justice involved women face many challenges such as; landing gainful employment, finding adequate housing, having public assistance, suffering from health problems, being caretakers, reuniting with families all while dealing with past trauma. At The Help, we sympathize, we are concerned and we care!
Our plan of action is to Help make your reentry process as smooth as possible. No matter what mistakes you've made or the crime(s) committed, we believe that your life can and will be transformed.
The Help’s mission is to inspire and empower women who have become impaired by unlawful choices. Programming goals will be to help women gain financial independence through employment and careers and gain good health through physical, mental and social supports.
