An essay penned by Sierra Conservation Center inmate Walter Pogue resulted in his son’s room getting a complete makeover all thanks to Room for Dreams California and Cassandra Vera. The program was started by Vera’s sister in Texas. Pogue was the first winner in California.
“It’s about the connection of value and worth between the inmate and his family. We are here to provide a voice for the father and hopefully turn a difficult situation into a positive for their child,” she said when announcing Pogue as the winner.
Pogue’s son now has a completely new room.
