The Potter County Detention Center introduced Inmate Programs on February 3, 2017. Inmate Programs allow inmates the opportunity to begin the process of change, as well as, use their time wisely. A variety of classes are offered including, but not limited to:

  • Life Skills: an ongoing group designed to teach general life skills to help with everyday life. Topics focus on positive, healthy coping skills.

  • Illness, Management and Recovery (IMR): intensive small group designed to target individuals with mental health concerns.

  • Houses of Healing: intensive small group designed to target individuals interested in emotional healing.

  • Seeking Safety: intensive small group designed to target females with trauma and substance abuse issues.

  • Sharing Hope: a program to assist women who are incarcerated in recovery and overcoming their destructive behavior by sharing God's love and hope through the teaching of His Word and through the equipping of life skills. This organization is statewide in 49 states and has been very successful in its work with inmates across our state. The Potter County Sheriff's Office holds a Chili Fundraiser each year in support of the wonderful work Sharing Hope does for the women incarcerated here in our facility.

As of January 2020, we have had 174 inmates graduate from the small intensive groups and many more attend general life skills classes on a regular basis.

We also offer GED classes, since February 15, 2017. We have had several take advantage of the opportunity. Since we have had 2 graduate with several on the verge of graduation. The great thing is that the program we use if they get out of jail they can go to any computer and continue that education.
