F.R.E.E. Event at CRCI

Several of the Oregon CURE Board of Directors (pictured from left to right is our secretary, president, vice-president, and correspondence secretary) volunteered at the Family Relationship Enhancement Event (F.R.E.E.) at the Columbia River Correctional Institution on August 16, 2014.  

This year is only the 2nd year the event has been held at CRCI.  F.R.E.E. had over 500 guests, not including the officers and ODOC staff, and a total of 117 Inmates participated. Attending the event were 302 family/friends and 72 inmate volunteers, including the incredible band.  The even was held in the CRCI yard and featured food, games, crafts, and face painting.  

Events like this are a huge morale boost and have a very positive impact on the inmates and their families.  

Columbia River Correctional Institution (CRCI) is a 595-bed male minimum security facility which was constructed on a 26-acre site in Northeast Portland at a cost of approximately $13 million. CRCI officially opened in September 1990. Located in the largest metropolitan area of the state, this facility is focused on alcohol and drug treatment, work programs, and preparing inmates for return to the community.
