The study focused on One of the widely recognized objectives of corrections, whether carried out in prisons or by non-custodial interventions, is the reintegration of offenders into their own culture and society. There is a need to assist them with their reunification with their families and re-entry into the community to ensure that offenders released from detention centers, prisons, correctional institutions or recovery centers re-claim their part and position in society. Sustaining recovery and achieving reintegration through the community-based care of ex-offenders is therefore important.In addition, the commission of crime is a result or consequence of the interplay of variables and situations in one's self, the immediate and greater world, and the decisions and decision-making processes of one. A qualitative research approach particularly a phenomenological design was used in this study., focused to the community members in barangay Bacayao Sur, Dagupan City composed of three members coming from the religious sector, three members from education sector and three members coming youth sector who have experienced in participating any rehabilitation programs for the women deprived of liberty. Based on the study results, the researcher therefore concludes that the community perceived women deprived of liberty as victims of circumstances that lead them to commit crimes in order for them to survive and value the relationship to others. These findings show that community sectors viewed women offenders as less harmful than men offenders. In this regard, they are willing to contribute or support the rehabilitation of women deprived of liberty particularly in education, employment and healthcare
