Passage Home is a 24-month program that offers women leaving prison the opportunity to re-enter the community in positive and responsible ways.
Women are referred to Passage Home by North Carolina Dept. of Corrections social workers within the prison facilities. After securing full-time employment, the women enter into an intensive casework program and begin setting life goals--generally, to reunite with their children and to live self-sufficiently. We offer comprehensive services including family reunification, budgeting, peer support, parenting classes, substance abuse counseling (AA/NA), employment planning & support, and permanent affordable housing.
Many of the women go on to become homeowners and earn college degrees.
Who is helped?
Women returning home from prison who are searching for employment, working to reunite with their children, and seeking substance abuse rehabilitation.
30 women and children served per year.
