CROP is a non-profit foundation that is developing a powerful program that offers educational opportunities to inmates to get the training necessary to become qualified substance abuse counselors. Once trained, these inmates are able to apply their counseling skills from within the prison environment. This dramatically changes the paradigm of prisoner rehabilitation. Inmates are now empowered to take on the responsibility of their own rehabilitation as they develop a community of peers that can help each other through this process.
By planting a seed of education the program with grow from within and transform the lives of those individuals as well as culture within the prison itself.
