We depend on the added support of our friends and contacts in the business community for support.  We are offering a great opportunity for you to align yourself with a very worthwhile cause.

We cordially invite you to contribute by:

  • Offering a corporate donation

  • Donating an auction or raffle item
  • Volunteering to support Arouet
  • Becoming a Fair Chance Employer and partnering with Arouet

With your generous support, Arouet will continue to fund comprehensive programs and services that make a difference in the lives of at-risk women and their families.

Creating a Better Society

It’s no secret that mass incarceration has reached staggering numbers in the United States. Today, there are over 2.3 million prisoners costing taxpayers more than $50 billion annually and without the support of rehabilitation services, that number only continues to grow as more and more people return to prison. Our goal at Arouet is to see release as an opportunity to give our communities well adjusted, self-sufficient, financially stable, productive members of society. Through the help of our community partners, we are able to ensure each woman that graduates from our program is equipped with everything she needs to be successful and lead a fulfilling and meaningful life after prison. These partners help in various ways:


All of our workshops are Community Leader led. We are always looking for volunteers happy to help facilitate or even lead workshops ranging from mock interviews and resume building to medical and computer coding. If you have a vast wealth of knowledge just waiting to be shared, come share it with us! Some of our workshops include topics such as:

Wellness and Healthy Living
Building & Projecting Self-Confidence
Building Healthy Relationships
Resume Writing
Interviewing Skills
Mock Interviews/ Resume Critiques (many volunteers needed)
