Our programs work to empower, inspire, and cultivate critical thinking, life skills, self-reflection, and peer mentoring.
At the same time, we bring public awareness about the needs of incarcerated women and their children.

As its founder and motivational educator, Deborah Jiang-Stein uses her unique story of hard won transformation to teach and plant seeds of change so when the women are released, they won’t return.
