You are invited to become a volunteer for the FAMILY RECEPTION CENTER at Strafford County House of Corrections. When a family member is incarcerated the whole family feels the anguish and suffering. Many families feel isolated and confused. Is God asking you to be present to these families through the Family Reception Center? Please think and pray about this.

As a volunteer you offer a friendly greeting, a cup of coffee, and most of all a supportive presence either before or after their visit with a loved one. If you wish to learn more about the Family Reception Center at Strafford County House of Corrections you can log on to their website where you can also find an application to volunteer.
