Warden John Sutton and Chief Deputy Warden Heather Shirley, on behalf of Wasco State Prison-Reception Center (WSP-RC), recently presented the Alliance Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault with a $1,000 donation.

Also donated were several items of necessity collected by the staff at WSP-RC for the women at the shelter. The Alliance Against Family Violence & Sexual Assault is a non-profit organization that shelters and assists victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Kern County.

They provide expertise in dealing with domestic violence and sexual assault and ensure the safety and well-being of victims and their children by providing services that address their individual needs and prepare them for self-sufficiency. WSP-RC partners with several local non-profit organizations to support those in need.
