Understanding the value of family

Successful re-entry back for offenders includes more than finding a job or a place to stay, it also involves reconnecting with family and children. In parenting classes at the Ketchikan Correctional Center (KCC), inmates learn how to reconnect with their families, and they learn  valuable techniques to deal with discipline, encouragement and support.

In the photo below, Richard Wilson, Brian Ojeda and Jordan Joplin display their certificates after successfully completing the parenting class at KCC.
