Our Life Improvement Ambassadors

Althea Harmon

2016 Life Improvement Ambassador

Althea Harmon began volunteering with Connections Work in 1985, visiting Berks County Jail weekly as a mentor and tutor. In 1996, she founded Mothers Voice, one of Connections Work's most impactful programs. Mother's Voice, which is offered weekly at the Main Jail and monthly at the Community Reentry Center, provides the opportunity for mothers and fathers to be videoed while reading a story to their young children. The children receive the book and DVD in the mail. Althea was instrumental in gaining funding for this program through United Methodist Women's groups. Under her guidance and leadership this program has flourished.
