High Desert State Prison (HDSP) is starting the new year by helping the community, beginning with a donation to Courage Worldwide.

Courage Worldwide (formerly Courage to Be You, Inc.) is an international non-profit organization founded in 2005 to help build homes for children rescued from sex trafficking so they have “resources and the opportunity to be and do all they were created to be and do,” according to the organization.

HDSP also assisted Courage Worldwide last year in August with their Triathlon held in Lake Almanor. Through that event, they raised over $12,000.

This donation was made possible by the High Desert State Prison Charitable Fund which is generated from inmate fundraising activities throughout the year.
