Community Involvement

Offenders participate in religious activities, Toastmasters Int’l, Alcoholic Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous groups as well as donating hand–made jewelry boxes to non–profit organizations for fundraisers.

In 2011 the prison started a Cat Adoption Program (LCAP). LCAP now partners with West Columbian Gorge Humane Society (WCGHS) and Humane Society for SW Washington (HSSW). Volunteers from the WCGHS and LCAP help teach rehabilitation techniques to the offenders to help treat and care for the cats and their individual needs. After the cats are deemed adoptable they are then available for adoption through WCGHS and listed on their website.
