FSA – Create New Beginnings (CNB)

Learn more, as this is part of The First Step Act

Program Description Taken from The First Step Act Approved Program Guide 1/2022 Create New Beginnings (CNB) is a value-based art program that empowers
incarcerated women to acknowledge and process their emotions as well as develop
their self-awareness through artistic expression. Studies show that creativity promotes positive behavior, self-confidence, and increases the likelihood of pursuing
further education, particularly within incarcerated populations. By creating a safe
place for the women to share and the utilization of music and art activities to process painful emotions, CNB creates a peaceful, safe atmosphere for ongoing healing. CNB helps women in custody be open to change, develop empathy for themselves and others, and strengthen their resiliency skills.
