Justice & Mentoring
"Going to jail probably saved my life, but joining the mentoring program definitely changed my life."
The Vermont Women’s Mentoring Program (VWMP) is a collaborative partnership among Mercy Connections and the Vermont Department of Corrections. Based on national best practices, this collaboration engages community volunteers, promotes meaningful and supportive relationships, and significantly contributes to the reduction of recidivism. It also improves women’s lives and strengthens the community.
