Today at 6:30 p.m., Bobby Blanchard, the Director of The Children’s Center at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility will be on Family Life Behind Bars Radio. Just an hour north of New York City, the maximum security women’s prison where the center is located, is home to mothers looking to maintain an active role in their children’s lives. Founded over 25 years ago, The Children’s Center offers programs and services that helps the mother strengthen her role as a parent, improve family ties, and support and nurture the children. The center is funded by an agency of Catholic Charities Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens. Blanchard, who has worked at the facility for 15 years and has been the director for four, will talk about the center, her experience working with both the mothers and children in the program, as well as what can be done to repair relationships that have been strained by separation.
