We are SO proud to announce the capstone to our Give Back line, the Empowerment Planner! These planners were co-created with the amazing women of the Arouet Foundation. They are jam-packed custom resources and will be 100% donated to women either in or recently transitioning from prison.
DID YOU KNOW...
- •Women in jail are the fastest growing correctional population in the country -increasing 14-fold in recent years
- •43% of women in prison have been physically abused, and 39% have been sexually abused (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2006)
- •Without resources to heal the hurts beneath their bad choices, many women stay stuck in a destructive cycle of crime and incarceration
- •When given a second chance with resources or programs like Arouet that give them hope, recidivism rates can drop more than 70%
Incarcerated women are often at the end of a long, difficult road, feeling rejected, worthless, and hopeless. Many are mothers. These planners were co-create with Arouet Foundation with love to inspire and empower these women and let them know they are capable of a fresh start. Learn more about this new initiative below!
