For 15 years the Furniture Masters have conducted a Prison Outreach Program in N.H. which was recently expanded to Maine.  Roger Myers, Furniture Master and Instructor Terry Moore, and former student and woodturner, Donald Briere, will discuss the program and show examples of Prison Outreach Program work.

Stefany Shaheen documented the life changing difference service dog Coach made in the life of her daughter Elle and her entire family.  Coach was trained by a prisoner in Ohio.

The program will explore the importance of rehabilitative work in the prison system in creating new paths to freedom.
