About

Amicus is providing information on its One to One program, in which volunteers are trained and matched with offenders within the correctional system for long-term visits, correspondence and friendship.

"Almost 2,000 people are released each day from U.S. prisons," Amicus President Emerita Louise Wolfgramm said. "If they don’t have constructive, supportive relationships, those released are far more likely to re-offend. Through its many dedicated volunteers, Amicus can help provide that support and together, we make our communities safer," she said.

The Community Information Night allows people to hear from an ex-offender stalking about how connections formed through Amicus allowed them to transform their lives. The session will also provide background information on Amicus and offer time for questions on the programs and volunteer opportunities available. Volunteers’ time commitments vary but are normally only a few hours each month.

The session is open to both potential volunteers and those simply interested in learning more about Amicus’ work.
