The Wright County Area United Way granted $1,000 to the Family Education Centers of Wright County in support of a parenting program for Wright County Jail inmates. The funds allowed the purchase of 150 children’s books which are used as an incentive for parents to attend the “Home Improvement” parenting class. The books draw parents to the class, but parents often return to the class many times during their stay to receive support as a parent in jail and learn new parenting strategies they can use once they are reunited with their children.
