Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs
The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs will partner with Aid to Inmate Mothers, Aletheia House, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham's Treatment Alternatives to Street Crime to develop a comprehensive reentry program that uses existing resources to help female offenders reintegrate into communities throughout the state. The program's services will be designed to meet the unique needs of women and mothers with children, and case managers will assess offenders and prepare individualized reentry plans that include in-prison and community-based services. The program will target female inmates between the ages of 25 and 35 who are serving sentences at the Julia Tutwiler State Correctional Facility, Alabama's only prison for women considered high risk for recidivism. Participation will be voluntary and is in exchange for early release. The program will be limited to 160 serious and violent female offenders during a 3-year period.
