About Women in Transition
Project Coordinator: Judy Hutt
WIT delivers educational instruction using the Moving On curriculum, designed specifically for women who are involved in the criminal justice system at Hazel D. Plant Women’s Treatment Facility.The overarching goal of the program is to assist women in mobilizing and developing personal and social resources that mediate the impact of risk for future criminal behavior. The program targets criminogenic factors in order to reduce recidivism and promote healthy living, thus improving one’s capacity for life’s various stressors. Women build human, social, and emotional capital necessary for successful reentry into the community and greater ecosystem.
