Enrichment for Women after Trauma

The mission of Crossroads of Iowa is to reduce relapse/recidivism among a unique group of women emerging from the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women, i.e., those imprisoned for drug crimes and treated for drug addiction while in prison. Conceived by women who themselves have needed this support, Crossroads plans to create a residential immersion program to reinforce new coping skills developed in treatment. In the meantime, they will offer classes, support groups and services to encourage successful re-entry among these vulnerable women. Crossroads of Iowa is designed to serve up to 125 women annually.
