CRC's 7 Step Foundation Host Family Ties Event

The Correctional Center along with their chapter of the 7 Step Foundation hosted their annual Spring Family Ties event. The Family Ties visit is designed to help strengthen the bonds between the cadre offenders and their families through meaningful activities. The main target for these visits are the children of the offenders. The spring visit was centered around a day of exploring science with the help of COSI. COSI has a special program called COSI on Wheels in which they bring science spot kiosk into the institution. These kiosk were set up in the gym and the families were able to learn and play at the same time. These kiosk explore many aspects of science from building pyramids to learning about gravitational pool. A real hit with the children was a kiosk to encourage the participants to construct their own roller coaster. The visit was catered by ARAMARK with child friendly food like Jell-O fruit cups and corn dogs. "This COSI visit allows our offenders to not only have meaningful family time, but it's also very educational," says event organizer and 7 Step Foundation advisor Ms. Rhodes.
