help strengthen our community
The WORTH Program relies on caring, supportive volunteers, and community resources and referrals to provide support and encouragement to women incarcerated in the Clark County Corrections Center. Volunteers offer support through companionship and conversation to clients during weekly visits to the facility.
When women feel supported, are listened to, and develop skills, they can regroup and rebuild their families which strengthens our community. WORTH bridges the gap that incarcerated women and men face when transitioning back into their community by providing:
- jail visitation
- facilitation of positive interaction between parents and children
- community agency and resource information
- assistance with re-entry into society
Any woman who is incarcerated in the Clark County Jail, or any
inmate—female or male—at the Clark County Work Center can participate in the WORTH Program. Participants span many ages, cultures, and ethnicities.
your support matters
WORTH is completely dependent upon two key elements for program success: caring volunteers and generous community donations.
Volunteers help empower and equip women with information, encouragement, and support. By teaching inmates how to sew, and most importantly, letting them know that someone cares, program participants can achieve their goals.
To help incarcerated women develop skills and effectively transition, we need dedicated, compassionate volunteers to listen and support our program participants. All WORTH volunteers must pass a jail security clearance and are asked to commit a minimum of one year. Jail visitations are Tuesday afternoons between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.
