“Our community partners are invaluable in our efforts to assist men and women as they reenter society. The Getting Ahead curriculum bears witness to our commitment to assist these men and women during their incarceration and upon their release. This education is vital in the development of self- awareness and growth, decision-making processes, and assessment of community resources.”
