A Familiar Voice
Named by a prisoner at FCRJ, A Familiar Voice is a literacy initiative that was established December 2019. Two WJRF board members facilitate the program, which is sponsored through Paul Sawyier Public Library. Ten prisoners recorded themselves reading a book to their child. The book, recording, and a book mark was mailed to the child. Twenty-one children received a mailed package for Christmas.
