The After Care Transition program facilitates a series of workshops in which over 50 partner agencies (state, community and corporate) join us inside Maryland’s women’s prisons. Alternative Directions, Inc. works with women leaving prison within 60 to 90 days of release from the Maryland Correctional Institution for women (MCIW). Workshops are held monthly, generally with a class size between thirty-five and forty prisoners. The ACT Workshops bring awareness to what these women will be facing when they are released, and provides resources of agencies to contact for varying needs. Speakers are encouraged to bring any literature from their agencies that will be helpful in guiding these women toward housing, jobs, physical and mental health care, substance abuse facilities, and other related topics. This gives the women names and telephone numbers readily available to them upon their release; a necessary component for successful re-entry.
