We have two amazing parenting class instructors who provide a 12-week men’s and women’s class inside the Franklin County Jail.
Through a partnership with GTL and with the help of our volunteers to supervise, we are able to provide free video visitation to children/youth continuously. The WJRF contracts a part time employee to assist our families with visitation appointments. Contact us if you would like to learn more about this program.
in partnership with the Paul Sawyer Public Library + the Franklin County Regional Jail
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.
