“Success Inside and Out” a Success at Hiland Mountain

The theme of the 2012 Success Inside and Out Conference at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center was to empower the participants to change their story and make a plan for success. The conference consisted of a series of concurrent sessions that encourage women to think about their reentry needs for that first week of release. This year’s conference featured 17 highly regarded women from Anchorage to work as mentors. Each encouraged the female inmates to begin preparing today for their immediate needs upon release such as clothing, transportation, identification and housing.
