Locked Up Should NOT Mean Locked OUT of our Society or Communities...
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Our Mission

Provide housing, comprehensive wrap around services, case management, advocacy, and leadership development. A holistic approach on helping women to rebuild their lives after prison and jail.

Our Vision

We envision a world where all formerly and currently incarcerated women of upstate South Carolina are supported and restored to a healthy path, experience whole life transformation and a permanent home.

Our Results

A track record of women achieving emotional and financial stability capable of rejoining their families. Nearly 15 years in operation, 80% job placements, 40% sober living and 20% of previously homeless women placed in housing.
Services provided at less than a third of the cost of incarceration.
