Spring 2020 Grant Recipient: To Whom It May Concern
for March 30, 2020
The sad reality for a woman leaving prison today is that a lack of meaningful opportunities to reengage with society dramatically increases the likelihood that she will end up back in jail. The US Department of Justice reports that 68% of released prisoners are re-arrested within 3 years of their release. 83% are re-incarcerated after 9 years. To Whom It May Concern (TWIMC) is a small nonprofit agency determined to stand alongside any woman in the state of Ohio who wants to beat those odds, by providing the support she needs to successfully reintegrate into her community. They are filling the gap where the system is failing. However, their volunteers need training in order to be well-equipped to really assist these vulnerable women and help them to not only survive but thrive in their communities.
