Craftsman Trades Fair

We held our first Craftsman Trades Fair in October. It gave inmates the chance to sell their art to the public. With more than 400 people and  $17,369.3, it was a success. They sold paintings, jewelry, quilts and much more art.

In total there were 20 offenders present at the fair to sell work from each of the prisons.

The proceeds were split four ways a portion of that money went directly to victims, offender's children and into programming to help other offenders obtain transferable skills. The rest goes back to that offender to reinvest into their business. We are excited to hold another one in May.
