Hancock County Jail Volunteers

Since January 2001, VHJR has grown from a few volunteers to an organization that provides everything from career guidance to artistic experiences. We volunteers are all ages, from early 20s to 80s. The only limitation on programs is what the jail will allow and the number of willing volunteers that are available to work with the residents.

Volunteers are currently providing group sessions in the jail on a variety of topics, including writing (for a story about the jail residents’ writing project — the publication of Notes from Inside– please scroll down), parenting, stress-reduction, yoga,* self-esteem, creative writing, art, anger management, and computer skills. Some of us enjoy facilitating group discussions, offering an empathetic listening ear. Other volunteers take turns distributing library books to the jail residents on Saturdays, providing an opportunity for friendly conversation while offering books.
