Project PROVEN; Circles of Support

Featured in this Show

  • Project PROVEN

    Western Technical College recently received an almost $300,000 federal grant to improve upon the education program at La Crosse County’s jail. The money will be used to improve the chances of an inmate getting a career, which should in turn lessen the chances they will return to jail.

  • Circles of Support

    Area churches have been providing help to La Crosse County jail inmates through the Circles of Support program. Volunteers meet in small groups with an inmate after they are released from jail. The goal is to give the person a new group of role models and prevent them from returning to their old habits.
