Yamhill County Women’s Correctional Facility, McMinnville, OR-Partner Since 2006

Inmates are excited to take the Hands & Words Pledge daily and that has made a tremendous difference on how they treat one another while incarcerated.  Karen Rogers, staff member, sees the changes first hand.  As part of the daily Pledge Karen also read a chapter from the novel “Call Me Hope” by Gretchen Olson five days a week and received very positive feedback from inmates.

This Pledge is a powerful tool take back to their families and community to integrate further into their personal lives for positive change.
