The Recent Happenings of COIPP

Parenting Sessions: We continue to have ongoing Wednesday evening parenting sessions at the Frederick Adult Detention Center for women inmates. We are about to begin parenting sessions at Lucas Village, Head Start and Family Literacy. See our Events page for more information.

Holiday Season:  We are looking forward to making the holidays special for the children of inmates by having the Moms in the Frederick Detention Center make special gifts for their children, including the individual taping of books by the Moms and the taping of a special, personal message in huggable, stuffed animals.

Speaking Engagements: We are spreading the word through variety of speaking engagements at the Maryland State Character Counts Conference, the Frederick Retired Teacher’s Association, and upcoming engagements at the Eastern Shore Children’s Group, and the Maryland State Warden’s Conference in Ocean City.
