Over the past several years, we have observed that many families who come to visit their loved one at the Rockingham-Harrisonburg Jail wait in their vehicles or outside due to the jail’s small waiting room. In response, the Valley Justice Coalition collaborated with area communities of faith to open a hospitality center for these families, hosted by RISE Harrisonburg across the street. The center is open every Saturday at 60 West Market Street while visitation is taking place. We are always seeking committed volunteers for this program, so if you are interested in being a presence with family members as part of this program, please contact us. Training will be provided. For more information on inmate visitation, see the Rockingham County Sheriff’s website.
