INMATE NEWSLETTER

Welcome to the first issue of LIFE INSIDE, a newsletter that provides a view of life inside the Strafford County Department of Corrections (SCDOC). The last such newsletter was published in January 2014 under the title Family Newsletter. The editor of that newsletter was SCDOC employee Marilyn Allen who retired on January 31, 2014. At the time she was the SCDOC’s Jail Industries Director and the Family Reception Center Founder and Coordinator. In the last issue of Family Newsletter, upon retiring, Ms. Allen wrote,
I am sure that if those incarcerated express a desire to have the newsletters con-tinue they will. It has been all of you sharing through your poems, writings, art and other accomplishments that have made this newsletter possible.
I believe that the families also really appreciate seeing what their loved ones are doing to take positives out of a traumatic experience. It gives families hope and pride to see some of the things that their loved ones have done while incarcer-ated. It gives families and those incarcerated hope for their future. I think it also reminds Strafford County DOC that their efforts with expanded programs and opportunities are not in vain but rather make a difference in the life of both the inmates and their families.
It is in such a spirit that the SCDOC Spiritual Care Advisory Board has taken on the chal-lenge and responsibility for restarting publication of an inmate newsletter. Part of the mission of the Spiritual Care Advisory Board is to ensure and promote the well-being of the SCDOC inmates. We hope that this opportunity for the inmates to share what they are working on and what is in their hearts and minds, with their families, with the SCDOC community, and beyond, will help affirm their connection to society in a positive way.
