Pathway to Change: The Jail Labyrinth Project

“Doing time and wasting time need not go hand in hand. At the Hampshire County Jail, staff and administration are creating innovative solutions, helping inmates address the issues that got them into jail in the first place. To this end, a recently completed project, the building of a labyrinth on the prison grounds, gives inmates the opportunity to stop and think, to reflect in a safe, quiet, and relatively stress-free zone. The prisoners supplied the labor for this project which brought about a collaboration of prisoners, community volunteers, the Sheriff’s Department and one very generous donor. To learn more, please watch this video.” -Judith Perry, Chief Operating Officer, The Lionheart Foundation
