Pennsylvania Prison Society
The Pennsylvania Prison Society serves as an advocacy group for those incarcerated, working to make sure prisoners are humanely treated and given adequate resources.
There’s a bold new tool to help those getting out of prison make the transition to law-abiding citizen.
Pennsylvania Prison Society executive director William DiMascio says the program had been highly successful over the past four years helping ex-offender fathers get training, jobs, and access to social services that helped them take care of their families.
A local program that aids fathers who had done prison time readjust to society is being phased out, because state funding has been cut off.
Miss America appeared with the Pennsylvania Prison Society yesterday at City Hall. The topic: the effects of parental incarceration on children. Miss America is one of those children.
