Topic Areas Include: Reentry Process and Policies, Programs in Prison, Higher Education in Prison, Reducing Recidivism, Prison Reform, Substance Abuse and Recovery


Helenia Bragg is a three-time returning citizen and a reformed survivor of over 40 years of substance abuse. Upon her last period of incarceration she earned vocational certificates in Substance Abuse Matrix Co-F, Breaking Barriers, HVAC, Building Maintenance, and Entrepreneurship, as well as an Associate degree from Piedmont Virginia Community College. Through her educational accomplishments she developed self-worth and a thirst for knowledge. She developed a capacity for achievement and was no longer afraid of success. In May of 2019, she received a Bachelor's degree from Marymount University at the age of 62. She is a prime example that higher education in prison reduces recidivism.  She is in the process of establishing a non-profit S.H.E. (Seeking Higher Employment) for female returning citizens who have education and/or vocational accomplishments to assist the women in secure career opportunities.
