A key to reducing recidivism is providing education and
awareness with economic opportunity. It is our goal to assist our participants

correction system. This is an important step in assisting returning citizens to
become productive members of our communities and it sets an example for others

We provide service to address Opioid misuse prevention,
targeting women and girls in the Greater Baton Rouge region. The aim of the
Program is to develop and implement prevention strategies, educational
activities, specifically tailored to address the unique needs of women across
the lifespan. The United States has seen an alarming rise in overdose deaths
from prescription painkillers and nonprescription Opioid among women. A unique
combination of biological, health, and social factors has led to the growing
Opioid epidemic among women.
