The Bedford Hills Correctional Facility is the maximum-security women’s prison in New York State.

SSPC has created a reading aloud book program where volunteers read to the mothers and their children during family visits, teaching mothers about the joy of reading to their children.

For more information, contact Carol Paiste through the church or Carol Hillenbrand, through the Community Center.

The Family Reunion Program gives inmates the opportunity to spend a weekend on site with their children. Volunteers shop for groceries and deliver them to the prison.
