ABOUT AROUET FOUNDATION


Arouet began inside Perryville Prison in Goodyear Arizona in 2004. Televerde, a Department of Corrections workforce development partner, began a reentry program called T.O.P.S. to help prepare incarcerated women for life after prison. We implement programs that emphasizeeducation, job skills, and post-release work opportunities, without increasing the burden on government.
