 Volunteer Programs

Volunteers serve in the following areas and programs below: educational programming, religious services, community outreach, recreation, and family preservation.

The Purposeful Living Units Serve (PLUS) program is a faith and character-based community within the facility. The emphasis of this voluntary initiative focuses on strengthening spiritual moral and character development as well as life-skills. Volunteers are needed to provide mentoring to offenders and facilitate the classes.

The Mosquito Nets program uses supplies donated from the community to fashion mosquito nets to send to communities around the world. These nets are essential to the fight against malaria. Volunteers are needed for supplies and program assistance.

The Indiana Canine Assistance Network (ICAN) meets two important needs in our communities: (a) providing children and adults living with a disability greater independence and an opportunity for a more enriched life by partnering them with a service dog and (b) preparing off­enders to return to our communities better equipped to successfully reintegrate with their families and obtain a job. Volunteers are needed to assist with the program. http://www.in.gov/idoc/2359.htm

The Wee Ones Nursery provides education and ensures quality time to strengthen the mother-infant bond during the initial months of the infant’s birth. The program includes ongoing training of the mothers in child development and attachment. Volunteers are needed to assist with the program. http://www.in.gov/idoc/2857.htm
