What We Do

Changed Choices exists so that women who have experienced incarceration can lead restored lives marked by healthy decisions, contribution to their communities and self-sufficiency.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

How We Are Impacted:

Our clients having served their time, are working hard to reenter our community. Most are single mothers living paycheck to paycheck. Any loss of income will be detrimental to their families. In addition to the financial stressors, they are homeschooling their children, some have underlying medical conditions that make them more vulnerable to the virus, and there is an increased vulnerability in their recovery and mental health.

How You Can Help: Financial Donations Requested

Please consider supporting Changed Choices during the COVID-19 crisis, as we continue to serve women currently incarcerated and those recently released, living in the Charlotte community. Your gift today will help us support increased client financial needs, as well as, on-going program costs to prevent any interruption to programs and services. Thank you for partnering with us.

Interesting Info

Our CARE program serves women from arrest, through incarceration, and years into their reentry as they establish new lives.
More than 80% of our clients are mothers.
Since inception, less than 8% of our clients have been rearrested, compared to national rates of 38% for women.
