Chopping 4 Change is Back!
After more than a year of limiting our Chopping for Change program (C4C) in order to follow guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID and properly social distance, our C4C program is back in person this July! We're excited for our students to return and can't wait to see what they accomplish.

C4C empowers women in the criminal justice system by providing them with significant work experience and training. This innovative partnership with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, and the Cuyahoga County Office of Reentry, also allows women to receive wraparound services including counseling and case management designed to facilitate their re-entry experience and decrease recidivism. To learn more about Chopping for Change, check out this video.
