Feature Story: The Bridging Program

The Bridging Program assists women who are incarcerated at Pine Grove Correctional Centre by helping them navigate their way through their sentence and overcome barriers to successful reintegration in their home community. The program consists of building and developing an institutional diary, addresses risk factors that prevent incarceration, encourages personal development, identifies a personal and professional support network, and creates a reintegration plan that targets all the identified needs of the individual.
