SistaH2SistaH = S2S
Our S2S program is performed through an 8-week program followed by six months of intensive personal coaching and life-long support. We help women achieve intentional transformation while providing self-awareness support based on #MentalRESET and an holistic approach to individuals as well as teams and organizations.
Women leaving prison and those who are victims of domestic violence face a multitude of challenges, including: finding and sustaining employment, family reunification, sustaining healthy relationships, and improving self-esteem.
The SistaH2SistaH Today, when women are released, most walk out of the doors with nothing but the clothes on their backs and are expected to find housing, a job, and provide for their families. For many women, no transition or reentry services are available at all. At least 1 in 4 women will become homeless after release, and after being rejected by countless employers and landlords due to their criminal records, more than 70% will give up hope and re-offend. However, this statistic drops to less than 9% for people participating in reentry programs. The long term vision of S2S is to be the go-to resource for all women being released from incarceration in by providing access to basic needs like food, clothing, housing, education and medical care, and helping women rebuild their lives through supportive programming that focuses on job readiness, financial literacy, parenting, health and wellness and more.
We push our clients towards successful re-integration back into society, motivated and ready to work.

The SistaH2SistaH Mentoring Program is an employment preparation and mentorship program for individuals reintegrating into their communities, post-incarceration. This program is conducted every week and continues after release. It begins four to six months before release with bio-psychosocial assessment and life-skills programming. The program provides concepts, basic principles, and the exploration of self-directed pathways that will aid in the successful recovery and reintegration process.
