Many leaving the correctional facilities today have limited support networks and fewer resources.  Most ex-offenders lack workforce skills and the individuals face challenges when returning to society.  It can be overwhelming. Without training and support many leaving the correctional facilities are not equipped to reenter society.

 

The KenTra Care Organization provides re-entry services and support to female offenders that are currently incarcerated and to ex-offenders. These services and support are provided through various programs and outreach efforts. 

 

*KenTra Care currently conducts monthly Women's Bible Study at the William G. Truesdale Adult Dentention Center in Alexandria Virginia.

 

We work with local social services networks, churches, local trade schools and also assist by referring our clients for special services.  These partnerships enable KenTra Care to expand and offer a wider range of services to our clients.
