Coffee Creek Correctional Facility provides real, workable rehabilitation for their female inmates. What a concept! Teach inmates to use their ingenuity to create work for themselves to avoid the pitfalls of the job search. Convicted felons face a steep uphill climb when seeking employment and turning their lives around. For some committed souls, the repeated rejection leads to a return to a life of crime. Some prisons provide inmate training in skill sets that a convicted felon will NEVER be able to obtain a license. This circumstance creates unreasonable expectations in those who had false hope.
Teaching inmates to create and to plan provides significant life skills to people who may never have learned planning or tapped into their innate creativity. Hopefully, this will catch on. Corrections departments should take notice.
