Cut The Risk! Benefit for Women At Risk

The new year has just begun, and you’re already stressed? Feel better fast when you book a haircut, manicure, facial or massage with Cut The Risk! Call 777-1886 to book your appointment.

All proceeds from Cut The Risk benefit the Women At Risk program. Women At Risk keeps women out of jail & prison by linking them to services that address the real root causes of their criminal behavior so they can stay in the community and out of the corrections system.  Women At Risk advocates for treatment as an alternative to jail and prison, providing clinical outpatient substance abuse and mental health treatment that helps women overcome self-destructive and abusive behaviors.

The program offers case management, court advocacy, and therapy groups that provide education, treatment, and relapse prevention.  90% of Women at Risk graduates successfully complete probation and stay out of jail and prison!  Women At Risk has been a program of Western Carolinians for Criminal Justice since the 1980s, but in 2013 joined Homeward Bound. Like Homeward Bound’s other programs, Women At Risk is relationship-based, spending time with women who are at their most vulnerable, treating them with respect, meeting them where they are, and valuing them for who they are.

A dozen salons around Asheville have donated their services for this benefit. The Buncombe County Bar is sponsoring this event. For more information, click here.
