OK 1st Beauty school- female prison

IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW.....OKLAHOMA INCARCERATES MORE WOMEN PER CAPITA THAN ANY OTHER STATE.  Our licensed Master Instructors volunteer to teach the ladies a vocational skill in Cosmetology, prepare them for testing, coach and mentor them, as well as help bridge the gap from the prison gate back into community;  by helping them with job placement assistance, transitional housing, transportation issues, clothing and recovery support.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections and the Oklahoma State Board of Cosmetology and Barbering both endorse this program and have been supportive in our efforts to establish this school.

This educational opportunity  (1 year program) will change 20 qualified women's lives and their children's lives.  These ladies will have the opportunity to stand on their own once they are released and will be changed women, moms, and tax paying citizens.  This will help resolve the ever growing recidivism rate (return to prison) by giving them the tools to live life successfully and eliminating the hopeless thoughts of re-offending.  For some, this will be the only time they have accomplished ANYTHING for themselves.  How amazing it is to witness lives being transformed.

With the generous support of people like you, we will be able to help these women not only meet daily needs, but to work toward a brighter future with our cosmetology program, Oklahoma State Board testing / licensure, education, job placement assistance, resume building, career readiness, clothing, recovery support, transportation, career tools, housing and mentoring. 

We have helped 5 women so far after them being released from prison with our new Resource Center, we look forward to helping more of our graduates after they are released! 


Help support us so we can have many more graduating classes of the R.I.S.E Program in Mabel Bassett Correctional Center
