Governor Beverly Perdue has released a budget proposal which would cut the corrections budget. As a result, programs such as Harriet’s House would be eliminated. Women who are released from prison may receive help from Harriet’s House which provides women and their children with housing and other basics so the women can readjust to life outside of prison. Former inmates Mae Stephens and Jenee Williams share their stories of how Harriet’s House helped once they left prison and prevented them from relapsing. Budget details, similar programs that will be cut, and the effects of cutting programs are detailed.
