What We Do

CCT seeks to strengthen the community by helping those with criminal records and their families navigate paths towards healthy and productive lives.

For more than forty years, we have provided a variety of services at CCT, aiding individuals who are currently incarcerated, those released from incarceration, as well as their children and families.

Our work provides employment and transition services; supports alternatives to incarceration; and restores and strengthens family bonds. We do so through our three main programs: LifeWorks!, Families Doing Time, and the Center for Women.

Lifeworks! provides individuals with criminal records with a variety of resources and tools necessary to reach their professional and personal goals.

Families Doing Time serves families who are dealing with the effects of having a loved one incarcerated. The various programs aim to provide emotional support and practical information about the criminal justice system and about available community resources.

The Center for Women is a thirty bed residential facility for women who are still incarcerated and serving out the final years of their prison sentences. Opening in 1987 as a contract work release program, the Center was created to help women successfully transition from prison to their family and community.

Interesting Info

More than 20,000 people are released from jail or prison and return to Mecklenburg County each year.
People with criminal records struggle to find housing, employment, and basic needs. More than 40% will be rearrested within 2 years.
