Victorian Association for the Care & Resettlement of Offenders (VACRO)
VACRO’s mission is to provide support and information for individuals charged with a criminal offence, prisoners and their families. They offer leadership, education, training and research on the justice system.
Community programs they operate include “Second Chance Coffee” and “Second Chance Cycles”, where offenders are trained as baristas or bike mechanics.
VACRO knows the importance of inmates maintaining their outside connections, so they operate many visit programs to connect inmates with their children, and also offer intensive family therapy.
The VACRO Children’s Foundation ahelps to support and protect the children of people in prison.
