Volunteer Opportunity:

Community Volunteer Sponsor

Become a trained community volunteer sponsor to take incarcerated women on trips into the community. CV sponsors receive annual training in order to take up 3 women off-site from our transitional facility. The purpose of CV sponsorship is to ease the transition from prison back into the community. The residents at our women's facility are completing the last 2-3 years of their prison sentences. CV Sponsors take them on a variety of outings including shopping trips, museum trips, park outings, religious services, and community events.

Trainings are held periodically. Volunteers are asked to commit to at least 3 hours a month. Trips are scheduled based on volunteer availability. If interested, please contact the CV coordinator for additional information. Please note - due to state regulations - CV sponsors working with our female inmates must be FEMALE.
