Help understands that over 62% of incarcerated/formerly incarcerated women have children who are 18 and younger and they are the head of their households but a felony conviction reduces their ability to find adequate employment in order to provide for their households. The Help is consistently searching for employers who are willing to look beyond the conviction of formerly incarcerated women and focus more on their ability to perform the duties of the job. When The Help partners with employers who offer opportunities to the women they serve, it restores hope, it gives them the second chance that they need and they are less likely to recommit a new crime.
and Family Reunification
Rebuilding the parent-child bond after incarceration, is a very important component of reentry. The Help hosts quarterly Women Empowerment Sessions to help women rebuild and heal from the separation from their children and discuss any issues they are having with reentry. Additionally, as apart of Family Reunification, The Help gives away tickets to the mother and their children to various games and activities to promote family bonding.
