Mission Statement

The Center for Community Transitions is a non-profit organization with a mission to strengthen our community by helping people with criminal records and their families find a healthier and more productive way of living.

Description

CCT is a non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the community by helping those with criminal records navigate paths towards healthy and productive lives. For more than forty years, we have provided a variety of services at CCT, aiding individuals who are currently incarcerated, those released from incarceration, as well as their children and families.

At CCT, we offer three main programs to address the needs of those incarcerated or recently released from incarceration:

  • The Center for Women is a 30-bed residential facility for women serving out the final years of their prison sentences. The foundational offering at the Center for Women is the work-release program, guiding women towards a place of productive living and independence.
  • Lifeworks! is the longest running program of the organization and focuses on helping individuals with criminal records navigate the process of attaining and retaining employment.
  • Families Doing Time is a program that is designed to help strengthen family bonds between an incarcerated loved one and her family and interrupt the cycle of inter-generational incarceration.
