The Moms and Babies Program at the Decatur Correctional Center in Illinois is a prison nursery and community reentry program that allows incarcerated mothers to keep their newborn infants with them for a specific amount of time, and supports these women in developing and nurturing bonds with their babies. Following release from prison, Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities continues case management, home-visits, and linkages to community services to continue progress.
