Women releasing from Coffee Creek Correctional Facility often do not have the help or support needed to get back on their feet. Many release with only one outfit, provided by the Department of Corrections, and nothing else. The goal of Overcome is to provide an additional outfit, hygiene supplies, and a warm welcome back into society.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 (or more!) to purchase a WELCOME WAGON. This Welcome Wagon will be a cargo trailer we intend to renovate (with the help of community agencies) into a mobile boutique, complete with a dressing room, clothing racks, and shelving. Our vision is to have the Welcome Wagon be run by formerly incarcerated women who have lived experience and expertise of navi...gating re-entry.
