This Christmas the staff and residents of CCT’s Center for Women received a heartwarming and encouraging Christmas card from a former resident. The Center for Women is our residential facility for women who are finishing out the last 1 to 3 years of their prison sentences. The Center aims to make reentry smoother for the residents. Residents are employed in the community, are sponsored by volunteers to go to off-site events, are able to attend community college, and are assisted by a case manager in finding housing on release.
As staff, we feel so privileged to be a part of this client’s journey, and there is no better Christmas present than to hear a client is doing well! (Full text below image)
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to the staff and Residents!
Ladies: I had the pleasure to be at CCTW from 2010-2013, the opportunities and resources that were made available to me while there absolutely put the finishing touches on me before my release. I want to thank the staff (Myra, Tiffany, Joy, and the many others that passed through those doors!!) and everyone of the people & community programs that help, encourage, and give their time to do all they could for myself and all the ladies that were there and will be there in the future. Thank you. My life forever changed the minute I walked into that huge white house on Park Place Dr. (the original, yeah I’m one of those 🙂 ) And I have only respect, gratitude, and an abundance of love for the ECO program and most of all Myra!!! Stay on course ladies, I am proof there is a REAL life and real means out here for us all. . .
Sorry I ran out of space. Just too many awesome memories, opportunities, and programs, mental health help, and just a real once in a lifetime experience that I was very much blessed to get. God opened many many doors for me, and as long as I do my part, stay the course, he continues to. Just had to let y’all know it’s possible to get out and do, not just say!
Joy, love, peace, and all my prayers,
A former CCT Client
