Reading Sponsor

Sponsors are needed for the Cascade County Regional Detention Facility's inmate reading program. A donation of $25.00 will cover the cost of a child's book, videotaping of the parent reading to his child and delivery of the book to the child.

The reading program not only encourages reading, it also strengthens family ties. Strong families improve the chances for a successful reentry into society after prison.
