Do you have a criminal offense history?

Your fresh start begins here.

Over 1.2M women are currently under correctional supervision in the United States.
Nearly 1M of those women are on supervised probation or parole, and almost 2M women (and girls) are released from jails and prisons each year. For women, access to trauma-responsive services remains a significant barrier when seeking assistance after incarceration, and sadly many women fall through the cracks of a decentralized and complex criminal justice system. Other main barriers system-impacted women face are:

 – Lack of childcare

 – Lack of transportation

– Lack of economic stability

 – Higher rates of mental health illness

reimagine how we connect women to services

In a study conducted by UCLA assessing our pilot program, Restore Her a 1:1 intensive case management model, they concluded that the strength of our program was connecting participants to the services they needed most. We were able to do this because we had a deep and holistic understanding of their needs captured by a comprehensive intake assessment.

Although we had much success providing intensive services through partnerships, a significant observation we found was that our participants were typically hesitant to introduce a new provider. These fears were triggered by past traumas of sharing intimate information in non trauma-informed settings, fear of judgement, and shame, having to relive their experiences with multiple providers. Many times, an additional intake would deter our participants from seeking services.

We build solutions that ensure women don’t fall through the cracks and gain access to all the services they need.

The Comprehensive Women’s Intake Assessment (CWIA) screener is a gender-responsive and trauma-informed, self assessment tool for system-impacted women with a criminal offense history. The assessment is designed to evaluate 20 common needs of women in eight areas.

Critical Needs

Economic Stability

Housing Safety & Security

Offense History

Mental Health & Behavioral Responses

Substance Abuse
