Making Choices Mentoring

What is Making Choices?Happy Mother and Son

Making Choices is a community of women. We teach decision-making and life-planning skills to women incarcerated at Denver Women's Correctional Facility (DWCF). Sponsored and facilitated by the Center for Spirituality at Work, our program connects business and professional women as volunteer mentors and teachers with incarcerated women. Since 1999, we have served more than 700 incarcerated women, assisting them in developing skills and gaining tools of self-determination.

We serve with the following purpose:

  • To foster the development of life-planning and decision-making skills
  • To ensure the release of incarcerated women back into society as stable and contributing members capable of leadership and pro-social relationships
  • To develop strong mothers ensuring a better future for their children
  • To educate the public about the increasing societal costs of our present system and the importance of reducing recidivism
  • To network, to facilitate, and to encourage new opportunities for employment and housing during re-entry
