CPP: Women at Risk now managed by Homeward Bound

From Carolina Public Press:

An Asheville-based program that for 30 years has offered women alternatives to incarceration is under new management.

Funding for the Women at Risk program, which provides a range of services to women caught up in the criminal-justice system, has gradually been eliminated over the past few years, threatening to end a program that has helped keep about 150 women out of prison annually.

Homeward Bound, a homeless-services organization also based in Asheville, has assumed responsibility for the program, assuring its continued operation.
