Description

Livin’ It! team members visit female correctional facilities in Virginia to educate and empower incarcerated women on health education and self-care. Health education includes substance use disorders, sexually transmitted diseases, and female health issues. Self-care education includes cognitive behavioral skills, physical healthcare, and spiritual tools for living a healthier life.  Baseline knowledge tests are delivered at the first session and reevaluated at the final session. Vast improvements have been consistently observed in participants.

“Livin’ It!” creates a safe place while bringing a sound professional approach to address the specific needs of justice-involved women.  Most prison programs have been designed for men. “Livin’ It!’ is specifically designed for women by women. There continues to be a waiting list.
