Judge joins local organization that deals with imprisoned parents
BRANDON — The Safer Society Foundation has announced the addition of Judge William K. Sessions III to the nonprofit’s Board of Directors. Sessions, a Cornwall resident, is a noted jurist and is currently a Senior U.S. District Judge for the District of Vermont.
“Bill supports the work we do,” says Jean Rosenberg, long-time Safer Society Foundation board member. “He is especially eager to work with us to build our ChIPs Mentoring and Circles of Support Program, as he has a long-standing interest in programs and policies that mitigate the impact of parental incarceration on children and families.”
The ChIPs Mentoring and Circles of Support Program is a burgeoning initiative of the Foundation. It connects children of incarcerated parents with a mentor and a support group.
“We look forward to working with Judge Sessions,” said Mary Falcon, Safer Society’s executive director. “His wisdom and years of experience in the justice system will greatly enhance our ability to build effective programs to serve Vermont children and families of incarcerated parents.”
