reentry program

Jes Burns

Incarcerated mothers have a new place to re-connect with their kids after they get out of prison.  Thursday, the re-entry services group "Sponsors" cut the ribbon on a new house in Eugene that will provide a place for families to get a new start.

Each of the five modest-sized bedrooms has its own bathroom and one wall painted a bright-cheery color.  In about a week, women will begin moving into Bothy Cottage in the Jefferson-Westside neighborhood.  Each will be joined by up to two of their children.
