Women’s Program Launched!

Posted: December 14, 2017 by wamjr60 in About PEP


On Monday, December 11th, PEP staff and 10 dedicated volunteers introduced PEP to 58 curious women at the Lockhart Correctional Center about 45 minutes southeast of Austin. The women listened very attentively as each person shared their personal testimony and “Why PEP?” story. Excited by what they heard everyone submitted an application; 44 women qualified and will begin class next week!

But wait, there’s more! As word spread around the unit about PEP, another 160 women asked for an application and completed it and returned it to the warden! We are already planning for several more classes during 2018 in order to accommodate this demand.

Events will be held once a month from now until April 2018, when the first Business Plan Competition and Graduation will be held, and we are now recruiting volunteers. You can find more information at www.pep.org/take action. Join us!
