BENEDICT CENTER INC
May 28, 2010

At the Benedict Center I have have seen compassion shown for those who most people dismiss-- those who have been arrested for criminal activity. While talking with some of these people, many of whom have probably done things that I would find abhorable and some of whom may be innocent, I am reminded that, despite what they may or may not have done, they are people with special gifts and special needs who should not be locked behind doors only to be forgotten. Through the Jail Book Club I am able to bring in a piece of the outside world and a bit of humanity.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

recognizing the inhumaneness of the criminal justice system. There is little or no programming offered to inmates without outside volunteers who can contact them.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the ability to see life from a different perspective - to walk in someone else's shoes.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

concerned and caring, professional, and generous.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help create a criminal justice system that is fair, equitable and effective.
