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 permanent housing.
Services are provided at less than a third of the cost of incarceration.

Kamala commits on assisting reentry programs across the nation, prison reform, and homelessness that should not be treated as a crime.
