The Adorers of the Blood of Christ-U.S. Region are proud to be part of the success story of the Center for Women in Transition.

Tonight, we will be honored at the Beautiful Transformations Gala 2015 for our financial contribution to this St. Louis nonprofit that was founded nearly 20 years ago to help women in the criminal justice system make a successful transition to life outside of prison or jail.

The group, started by women, for women, provides tools, support and resources to help recently incarcerated women make good choices and achieve their goals.
