You want to make a real difference?
Women in Transition equips volunteers to make real relational connections with women transitioning out of prison or jail, making it possible for them to write a new ending to their story. These are the first steps to become a Women in Transition volunteer mentor.

Matching Process Begins
Upon completion of the above steps, you are ready to be matched with a Women in Transition small group! This process can take between 20 and 50 days. That’s because we are working hard to create the best small group we can.
Some of the things we look for when matching Women in Transition small groups are vocation, common interests, location, hobbies, personality, etc. Once we match you, we will reach out to confirm you are still interested, then schedule a group conference call.
