Scientology Volunteer Minister
"Something CAN be done about it!

I June 2017

Dear Mr. Goehler,

Hello! I got both your letters from Jan and March 2017. I was told by Joe that you sent other ones but for some reason I never got them. My apologies on that.

I've been in touch with Joe Bush. He visits me usually once a week. He's working on starting doing The Way to Happiness Lectures at the half-way house he's currently at. It's quite exciting but new territory so we're going through our bumps in learning.

How is SPO doing? I commend you for carrying the torch on this group and keeping it going despite suppression, invalidation and possibly failed purposes. Joe has told me a bit about the about group but I really have little reality on it right now. Please tell me about it. How big is the group now? What do you do? How often to do you meet? Is it just you running and creating it? Others? Anything else you can tell me?

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers Helping Prisoners Program has the purpose of creating many groups similar to SPO in prisons, where requested, so your experience and efforts are very appreciated as an example that I can learn from to help others.

How could I get a simple monthly or possibly weekly report line from you on the products (successes, etc.) and stats of SPO. I want to keep and track of it to better understand the dynamics and challenges of and help grow the group.

That said, what help do you need from me in creating SPO?

I'm looking forward to hearing back from you. And promise to answer in a more timely fashion.

Best,

Damien [signature]

CDCR allocates more than $14 million to boost rehab programs

The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has awarded funding for more rehabilitation programs, reports Nuala Sawyer of the San Francisco Examiner.
The department has allocated $14.5 million to boost innovative programs and increase volunteerism in prisons.
Now in its third funding cycle, the Innovative Grants Program will establish 43 programs at 20 adult institutions. The funds are allocated for programs that teach offender accountability, violence prevention and restorative justice skills. Grants have also been given to programs that teach communication and de-escalation skills, dog training, prison gardens, family reunification and computer coding, Sawyer reports.
"Positive programs help offenders learn important life skills, foster peaceful communication and self-reflection, and contribute to safer prison environments for inmates and staff," said Jay Virbel, director of CD-CR's Division of Rehabilitative Programs. "Expanding programs to even more prisons and focusing on our long-term offender population will enable the state to see even more success in preparing offenders to return home."
The money will be divided into three parts over a period of three years, for a total cost of $9 million. The funds are designated for prisons that lack volunteers and non-profit organizations that facilitate existing programs.
Additionally, $5.5 million will be awarded for one-year programs that serve inmates with long-term non-life or life sentences.
Some of the recipients of the monies are Marin Shakespeare Company, GRIP (Guiding Rage Into Power), Buddhist Pathways Prison Project, Marley's Mutts and Prison Yoga Project.
Some of the sponsors for these programs were asked their view on how additional funding for their programs will impact the prison system.
James Fox, sponsor of Prison Yoga Project at S.Q. since 2009, said, "If the mission of CDCR is rehabilitation, every penny spent on rehabilitation is money well spent and enhances the prospect for reducing recidivism and contributing to public safety."
Fox's goal is to establish yoga mindfulness in prisons everywhere.
GRIP sponsor Jacques Verduin said, "It opens up the prisons to community organizations, and that's important, because it brings resources to prisoners that they haven't been privy to. It also demonstrates to the public the human side of prisoners who're giving back to the community they once took from."
GRIP is a one-year program comprising four elements: stopping violence, developing emotional intelligence, cultivating mindfulness, and understanding victim impact. Since inception five years ago, 69 graduates have been released, and none has returned to prison.
Four years ago a presentation was given by GRIP. A former inmate and a victim participant told of GRIP's impact on their lives, before the Public Safety and Budget Committee. This provided an important impetus for establishing the funds, allocated in increments of $2.5 million the first year, $3 million the second year, and $14.5 million the third year.
The funding has added 188 programs not previously offered. However, when the monies run out, it is expected the programs will continue financing those programs on their own dimes.

California Allocates $10.6 Billion for Prisons

By Juan Haines
Senior Editor

The 2016-17 California budget includes $10.6 billion for operating the state's prisons, which represents 8.5 percent of the state budget, compared to 11.4 percent in 2011-12.

THE BREAKDOWN

The budget includes statutory changes to allow life-term inmates to be eligible for extended family visits.
Twenty million dollars are allocated for Napa County to replace its jail as a result of damage by the 2014 earthquake. For counties that have not previously received full funding for replacing their jails or to improve custodial housing, re-entry, rehabilitative programming, mental health services or treatment space, renovating may apply on a competitive basis for $250 million.

PROPOSITION 47 SAVINGS

Calculated savings of $39.4 million are anticipated due to: a reduction in the state's adult inmate population; trial court workload associated with fewer felony filings and more misdemeanour filings, and the number of offenders re-sentenced and released from the Department of State Hospitals, and increased costs due to a temporary increase in the parole population and trial court re-sentencing workload. Ongoing savings are expected to be approximately $62.6 million.

See California on Page 5

California
Continued from Page 1

A discretionary one-time investment of $28 million for grants is allocated to support drop-out and truancy prevention programs ($18 million) and grants to support mental health and substance use disorder treatment and diversion programs ($10 million).
The total Proposition 47 savings is $67.4 million.

REHABILITATIVE PROGRAMS

- $431 million for inmate rehabilitative programs, an increase of approximately $100 million compared to the 2015 state budget.
- $2.2 million to expand cognitive behavioural programming to all institutions. Cognitive behavioural therapy programming includes substance abuse disorder treatment, criminal thinking, anger management and family relations.
- $18.9 million to expand substance abuse disorder treatment programs to the 11 remaining institutions without a program and expand the number of slots at prison-based re-entry hubs.
- $8.6 million for Innovative Programming Grants for programs focusing on offender responsibility and restorative justice principles; $5.5 million is a one-time allocation focusing on programs proven successful in serving long-term or life-term inmates.
