General Program Description

Through financial support from Correctional Service of Canada and the co-ordinated efforts of the institutional staff, inmate committees, our staff and volunteers, the John Howard Society is able to provide transportation and accommodations for families of Newfoundland inmates serving sentences in Federal Institutions in the Maritimes.

Selected families from various locations in Newfoundland and Labrador will visit inmates in Atlantic, Springhill, Dorchester Medium, Dorchester Minimum (formerly Westmorland Institution) and the Nova Center for Women.  This year’s event will be organized in March with the family visit taking place in June.
