Beyond the Bars- new website and blog from Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail Inmate Programs

Phyllis Back, Director of Programs, Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, has launched a new website and blog.

This jail-programs blog is sure to be another “first” for us in Charlottesville!  Some recordings from the Music and Poetry Class are already available, and more will be coming soon.  Stay tuned for announcements of events as well as information about the activities that 300+ volunteers make available to the inmates.   Perhaps you would like to volunteer some of your time?
