Passages Celebrates with Ice Cream

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Passages alumni and staff had an ice cream social this afternoon to celebrate their successes.

Officials say the event recognizes the accomplishments the women have made. Passages is a therapeutic community for the Department of Corrections that helps inmates transition back to society.

Former Passages resident Cassie Burling says the passages programs have helped her tremendously.

"They actually taught me how to be more responsible," Burling said. "And I think my main thing was how to be happy without having to commit crimes and things like that, just to be happy with life."

Organizers say the programs teach residents how to find their inner being and self confidence, while managing their anger. Teachers also show inmates how to find and keep jobs through the programs.
