Studies show working with our hands improves brain function, increases pleasure, decreases stress, enables positive thoughts, fosters communication and supports mental well-being. While participating in class the women learn a craft such as sewing. The craft projects provide a sense of accomplishment and pride.

The women make two projects - a thank you card which you see displayed and another project to take home upon release. Women experience an opportunity for self expression as they embark on a path to making healthy choices.

Our trauma informed curriculum teaches participants to recognize Post Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms linked to their substance abuse and incarceration. Classes focus on the downward spiral of substance abuse, providing women with the tools to handle triggers and relapse threat.

Your donation has the power to make an impact in the lives of the women we serve. Now through December 31st, 2023, you can double the impact of your gift thanks to a GENEROUS grant from the George and Mildred Frank Fund through the Community Foundation Tampa Bay, the $50,000 Matching Gift Challenge.: “The Red Tent Women’s Initiative Impact Campaign.”

As you look to your end-of-calendar year charitable giving, please consider a tax-deductible donation to the Red Tent Women's Initiative, Inc. on behalf of the women we serve, with a GRATEFUL HEART, WE THANK YOU!
