PREVENTION  


For over 25 years Greenhope’s expertise has been in the field of women and criminal justice. Recently, Greenhope has moved into the arena of prevention, creating innovative programs designed to keep women out of the criminal justice system and their children out of foster care. The following are prevention programs:


Community Residential

Greenhope made available six beds in the residential unit to provide substance abuse services to women uninvolved in the criminal justice system. Client enrollment is voluntary. However, they are expected to participate in the full range of services. Greenhope intervenes at a critical point in their lives, addressing substance abuse and other clinical issues helping them to make the transition to self-sufficiency and independent living.

Greenhope’s future goal is to make more beds available to women from the community. Clients participate in individual and group substance abuse counseling, relapse prevention groups, vocational and educational activities, parenting skills development workshops, empowerment seminars, and recreational activities.

Other services provided include: domestic violence intervention & workshops, HIV/AIDS & nutritional counseling, and medical, housing and financial assistance. Upon successful completion of the residential component, clients are encouraged to attend aftercare services for six months. Clients attend at least three times a week. They receive individual and group counseling services. Groups include relapse prevention and employment retention.

Family Development

The Family Development program is designed to meet the multiple and complex needs of mothers who are chemically dependent and are mandated to treatment as a condition of public assistance eligibility and those re-entering society after incarceration. This program is designed to prevent children from being placed in or returned to foster care, to prevent relapse, and to assist mothers in achieving self-sufficiency.

Clients participate in family, individual and group counseling, substance abuse counseling, relapse prevention workshops, chemical dependency education, vocational and educational groups, parenting skills development, foster care workshops, referrals, empowerment seminars and recreational activities.


Other services available include: domestic violence intervention & workshops, HIV/AIDS & nutritional counseling, medical & legal assistance, and housing and financial assistance.

Upon successful completion of the day treatment component, parolees are encouraged to attend six months of aftercare services. Clients attend at least three times a week. They receive individual and group counseling services. Groups include relapse prevention and employment retention
