The women are part of the ReMerge of Oklahoma County program. The four-phase program offers an alternative for pregnant women and mothers facing incarceration from non-violent felony convictions.

The commissioner of the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services will be at the ceremony. It's scheduled for Dec. 5 at Chesapeake Energy Corp.
