The mission of the 7th Step Foundation Club is to reduce recidivism by overcoming criminal thinking and providing transitional services. The club believes that one must heal their past in order to build their future, but no moment is more powerful than taking care of today. The club works with community-based partners to transform today’s adults in custody into tomorrow’s good neighbors. 7th Step Foundation Club activities include:
The Alternatives to Violence Program (AVP) is an international multicultural volunteer organization that is dedicated to reducing interpersonal violence in our society. AVP workshops present conflict management skills that can enable adults in custody to build successful interpersonal interactions, personal insight and to find new and positive approaches to their lives. This is done by providing various activities and services that empower people to lead nonviolent lives through affirmation, respect for all, community building, cooperation and trust.
Parenting Inside Out (PIO) is an Oregon-grown skills training program that is the highest rated parenting service for criminal justice-involved adults (National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices). PIO is an evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral parent management skills training program created for incarcerated parents through a six-year collaboration of scientists, policy makers, practitioners, and instructional designers. Topics covered in the coursework include:
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) are specifically designed to provide a safe, non-judgmental and all-inclusive environment for adults in custody to listen and share their experiences while learning how to apply the philosophy and traditions of AA/NA in their own lives.
