The Stronger Families Program at Loddon Prison

Thomas-and-Friends-Sound-Book-and-Thomas-Plush-Toy-3[1]Castlemaine Community House facilitates regular sessions for kids to visit and play with their dad’s in Loddon Prison. The program has had to expand as the prison extension has doubled the prisoner numbers. The fathers are able to spend time with their children playing and reading to them and building parenting skills through our program. Donations of toys and books are always very very welcome so we can maintain this progressive program. More information contact us here on 5472 4842
