The Free to Succeed (FTS) program celebrated the end of its inaugural year on May 25, 2016, with a dinner at Trinity College. FTS partners, mentors, and participants were joined by Connecticut First Lady Cathy Malloy to discuss the importance of FTS to its participants’ ability to realize their educational goals. This innovative program is a collaboration between Trinity College, the Community Partners in Action/Resettlement House, the Judy Dworin Performance Project, Capital Community College, and Manchester Community College. It takes a uniquely holistic approach to provide women during and after incarceration with the support and resources needed to pursue a college education.
