Women Offender Services
Corrections Community Network for Women
The Clark County District Court Women's Program provides a gender-responsive range of evidence-based services to eligible female clients, who demonstrate a higher risk to re-offend without intervention in areas of criminogenic needs.
We will be a catalyst in forging a deep community commitment designed to reduce recidivism, increase the availability of services, and enhance the lives of women by promoting independence, growth, and self-efficacy.
