Members of the Altrusa Literacy Committee recently delivered 200 books to the Roswell Correctional Center (RCC) in Hagerman.

The RCC was originally classified as a Minimum Facility (Level I) when it opened in 1978, with an inmate capacity of 65. In January 2000, the department determined that it was in need of additional Level II beds, at which time the center’s custody level increased from a Level I to a Level II facility with a capacity of 340 inmates.

There are various programming and treatment opportunities at RCC including education programs, a welding program (with certification), substance abuse community and a volunteer fire department. There is a large volunteer base with over 100 volunteers providing religious support and other services.

Altrusa is glad to be counted among the volunteer programs that help provide services to the facility, according to a press release from the committee.
