Resonance Center for Women


Rebuilding Lives and Families

In Oklahoma, the incarceration rate of women per capita is greater than almost anywhere else in the world. Upon reentry, women’s transition back into society is complicated, harsh, and unsupportive, especially when substance use is a factor — creating irreparable damage in their lives and the lives of their families. Resonance Center for Women helps promote and support these women’s well-being and self-sufficiency as they navigate this challenging transition.

The Rebuilding Lives and Families initiative is designed to give women the tools they need to succeed after incarceration. This includes case management and reentry planning, housing and transportation assistance, substance use disorder recovery services, and assistance with basic needs — all things that promote stability and a chance at living a healthy, fulfilling life while remaining incarceration-free. Without Resonance Center, many of these women would be forced to face endless barriers with minimal resources and no support system.

The Resonance Center for Women will receive a $50,000 grant from the Aura Cacia Positive Change Project in 2024 to help the Rebuilding Lives and Families initiative continue to improve the lives of women who need compassion and support — not more prison time.
