The residents are serving out the last part of their sentences, usually a matter of months. Volunteers of America contracts with the Bureau of Prisons to run the center to provide security and case management.

Volunteer and help out a new friend... Yelp Helpers recently converged on Peaks Island to build raised beds at the Fay Garman House for growing vegetables and flowers. This is an annual event and they had such a great time, they've signed up for next May already. Also in May was the United Way Day of Caring at Bayview Heights in Portland and Paul Hazelton Houses in Saco.
