Let’s Start is dedicated to helping women transition from prison life to society. Women that were just released from prison struggle with housing, education, employment, dysfunctional families, or addictions.

Let’s Start offers support and programs to these women including:

  • Weekly support groups at Let’s Start and the Clayton jail with follow-up and referrals for housing and employment
  • Monthly parenting sessions
  • A legal clinic that offers free legal advice
  • Prison visitation program so children can visit their moms
  • Individual and group therapy sessions for children
  • Field trips for children to provide respite time for caregivers
  • Monthly group sessions for caregivers
  • Structured activities for children when their moms are at support group
  • Talks in the community about issues that impact their lives
  • “Stories of Hope” – true stories relayed through dramatic presentations
  • Discussions with legislators about policies that affect incarcerated or formerly incarcerated women’s lives and their children’s
