The Junior League of Tulsa, Inc., has a partnership with the Resonance Center for Women, an organization that supports the well-being and self-sufficiency of women and their families challenged by the criminal justice system and affected by substance abuse. Oklahoma is ranked #1 in the world, per capita, for the number of women in incarceration, and the majority of these convictions are related to substance abuse. Many women are referred to Resonance to participate in comprehensive substance abuse treatment programs in lieu of incarceration. Resonance also provides services to women who are preparing to be released from incarceration and re-entering the Tulsa community.
The Take 2 Committee provides a curriculum for women who have already released from prison and are working at Resonance’s Take 2 Cafe downtown. Our main goal is to provide healthy, drug-free social interactions and mentorship for the women working and living at Take 2.
