Overcome reaches out to help women who are being released out of prison.

Women being released from prison do not always have help or support. Overcome provides assistance to help these women transition into society.

The Overcome program consists of different groups such as:

  • clothing
  • food
  • hygiene
  • job mentoring
  • transportation
  • outreach
  • treatment
  • health/exercise
  • haircuts
  • welcoming committee

Each group has a leader and volunteers ready to help.

This program provides opportunities to help these ladies become self-sufficient.  Overcome consists of people helping people and helping guide these women in the right direction.

“I’m not what I have done, I’m what I have overcome.”
