Often working with women who have been recently incarcerated, ODWIN’s founder and her team of volunteers help women overcome the many obstacles and barriers they face when released from prison.
Opening Doors for Women In Need provides programs for women that will empower them with faith, confidence, resources, teaching and training needed to gain a level of independence and self-sufficiency, creating financial accountability and stability to be able to provide for themselves and their children.

At Opening Doors for Women In Need, we facilitate a tailored reentry program that helps women navigate successfully through the integration process of returning from incarceration; starting by providing a safe, clean housing facility geared to help prevent women from returning to an environment that may contribute to further criminal behavior; also making available support systems that help the women physically and spiritually.
