BENEFITING: RELIGIOUS MATERIALS FOR INMATES
ORGANIZER: RELIGIOUS MATERIALS FOR INMATES
We have found there is a need for religious materials, bibles, etc. for all faiths. In prison, getting religious materials is not an issue because money has been allocated for it. In jail this service has been cut due to budget constraints. When a person goes to county jail there is little for them to do. There are no programs, classes or jobs for them. If they are not on lockdown, they are allowed only a certain amount of time in their dayroom or yard. Most of the time the inmates are on their bunks. Inmates can be in county jail several years awaiting trial or serving their sentence.
