The new Red Lodge Transition Center for Women will soon open its doors to Native and non-Native women upon return from treatment centers, jails and prison returning to Clackamas County. Host Karen James visited the Center and spoke with Trish Jordon, Executive Director, Red Lodge Transition Services; Myrna, the Center’s manager; and Millie.  The Center will provide culturally-focused, gender-responsive programming, substance abuse aftercare, and case management (housing, employment, mentoring, money management).  Its holistic model promotes wholesome values and responsible earth practices.
Women completing treatment programs, or releasing from jails and prisons are frequently faced with the challenge of securing employment, establishing new relationships, re-uniting with children and finding affordable, safe, clean and sober housing…and many have no safety plan. Without physical custody of children, women rarely qualify for homeless shelters, subsidized housing or domestic violence programs...these women are truly vulnerable.  The Red Lodge Transition Center for Women is located about a mile outside Oregon City, Oregon and will serve 6 to 9 women in recovery; the 12 week curriculum consists of the following:

  • Self Awareness and Self Esteem
  • Identity and Values
  • Survival Skills
  • Financial Management
  • Becoming Trauma Informed
  • Reducing Anxiety through Breathing and Self Actualization
  • Healthy Relationships (Domestic Violence)
  • Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder
  • How to Set Boundaries
  • Goal Setting and Journaling
  • Women's Wellness
  • Cooking With Chef Laura (healthy eating and cooking)

Red Lodge Transition Services is a Native American led organization that provides culturally focused programs for women releasing from jail, prison or treatment.
