Program Summary: The Dahomey Training Center is an anti-violence and drug prevention program paired with a hands-on job readiness/job training component designed for women facing massive challenges as they tranisition from leaving correctional facilities to re-entering society. 

Experts agree that drug and violence prevention approaches, coupled with employment programs, have a primary impact on reducing recidivism. Becoming self-sufficient is key to stabilization in all areas of life. Incorporating three components—violence reduction/prevention, drug use reduction/prevention and hands-on employment training—Dahomey will address COMBAT's ex-offender and violent crime reduction areas of need and offer transformation for women leaving incarceration and re-entering society. 

In Kansas City, as is the case nationwide, women ex-offenders are released with significant and ongoing economic and societal obstacles to overcome.
