Conversations with Jennifer Smith

Harrisonburg, VA – On November 2 of last year, 12 women became the first women graduates of Gemeinschaft Home, Harrisonburg's transition program for nonviolent offenders dealing with substance abuse. Four among those 12 decided to stay put in Harrisonburg. WMRA's Martha Woodroof asked Probation & Parole District 39 whose office is in Harrisonburg to put her in touch with a graduate who'd be willing talk with us regularly over the next six months. The following is the first of these conversations.
