Community Involvement

At Mission Creek Corrections Center for Women, there is participation on the Community Advisory Board and Family Advisory Committee.

As well as the Community Advisory Board and the Family Advisory Board, Mission Creek has a Substance Abuse Treatment Program staffed by a Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor who delivers outpatient and relapse prevention therapy for offenders. Mission Creek also has Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Celebrate Recovery support groups that are delivered on site by community volunteers.

Offenders are assigned to Offender Change Groups based on needs identified during their assessment. These include: Partners in Parenting, Transition to Life, Read to Me Mommy, Healthy Relationships, Families in Transition, Women Navigating Life, WWISH, and the Women’s Conference.

Many offenders are in the Circle of Giving program. They utilize the many materials donated by members of the community to craft high quality quilts and crocheted items for homeless and needy individuals.
