Currently, there are over 900 women incarcerated in NSW. WJN has 50 women matched but we still have a large gap to fill so that women who come from prison have a trusted friend to guide them and walk beside them.
Every day we see the difference our mentors are making to the lives of women and young girls.
Joanna was surrounded by violence as a child and struggled with addiction when she self-medicated to deal with unresolved trauma. As an adult, and lacking self-esteem, she found herself in a DV relationship and in prison. However, she turned her life around with the help of WJN and her mentor and she has now escaped her violent relationship, gained full-time employment and wants to give back one day by becoming a mentor.
So that we can help more women like Joanna, will you help us to raise $21,000 in 21 days by making your donation today?
