Best Prison Therapy Denver 2002 - Limon Correctional Facility
At this high-security prison, the guards encourage inmates to share needles. That's because these prisoners, some of the most difficult-to-supervise men housed at Limon -- are learning to knit as part of a therapy and rehabilitation program. Convicts have to earn their way into the program, now in its tenth year, with good behavior. The results of their labors, created on both needles and knitting machines, are sold at cost to nonprofit groups around the state that help homeless and poor children.
