Pathways to Prosperity Grant – American Furniture Masters Institute
We are proud to announce that this year’s Pathways to Prosperity Grant was awarded to the American Furniture Masters Institute to help them develop a furniture making program in the newly opened Women’s Correctional Facility in Concord. They currently offer this program in the men’s prison and this will help to bring the same skills and opportunities to incarcerated women, helping them to rebuild their lives, pursue more highly paid employment, and be less likely to re-offend in the future.
Space has already been set aside in the facility. Our support will help to purchase tools and provide teaching stipends for the all-women team of teachers.
