Angelia Andersen was referred to our Community Re-Integration Services from the Big Island Substance Abuse Council (BISAC) Women’s Furlough Program. Upon entry to the program, Angelia made effective use of the opportunities offered. She served as the Chairperson of her Peer group where she strengthened her natural leadership skills and completed the Forward March Employment Training Program. As a result of her efforts and program support Angelia obtained a part-time position with HOPE Services Hawaii West Hawaii Emergency Housing Program, has remained clean in her recovery, reconnected with her family support systems and has not committed a new crime, thus reducing her chances of recidivism.
