The Idaho Correctional Alternative Placement Program (CAPP) held its annual appreciation luncheon on June 23, awarding the “Volunteer of the Year” award to husband and wife team Stephen and Linda Cordon.
The couple volunteers their services from the Latter Day Saints Addiction and Recovery Program twice a week, teaching Recovery and Spiritual classes.
“The Cordons have done a tremendous job here at our facility,” said Warden Brian Finn. “They have dedicated many hours to help our inmates prepare to successfully transition back to society. We are grateful for their dedication and service.”
Each year volunteers from the Ada and Canyon communities provide weekly support groups for offenders in areas such as religion and alcohol and drug abuse. These individuals provide hundreds of hours each year to help inmates improve their lives. These support groups are an opportunity for fellowship and help inmates achieve a full and lasting recovery once released.
Idaho CAPP is located in Kuna, Idaho, and is operated by Management & Training Corporation, a Utah-based company, for the Idaho Department of Corrections. The facility has the capacity to serve 432 offenders. The facility provides intensive, three and six-month treatment programs for adult male offenders with substance abuse/dependency and related problems. The CAPP facility has been in operation since July 1, 2010.
