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 >
