ABOUT AROUET FOUNDATION

 
We empower women, change lives, and better our community. 

The Arouet Foundation was incorporated as a 501c3 in 2011. Arouet’s reentry program (TOPS 1) was specifically designed to assist the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated reenter society and reduce their likelihood to recidivate.* To date, Arouet’s reentry program has a 6.1% recidivism rate. 

In 2017, the Arouet Foundation created two new programs – a post-release program (TOPS 2) and a Mentor program to assist the reentry program graduates better adjust to their professional & personal lives post-release. To date, Arouet’s post-release programs have a 0% recidivism rate. 

[*Recidivism is defined as the likelihood to return to prison within three years of release from either committing a new crime or returning for parole violations. Arizona’s current recidivism rate is 37.5%.]  Learn More About Arouet >

FEATURED STORY

Well I suppose the hardest part of telling any story is figuring out where to begin, So allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ashley, I am 30 years old, I am a daughter, a wife, a mother and I am also an inmate in the Arizona Department of Corrections. Is this the way I planned my life?
