Welcome to
Thresholds of Chester County

Thresholds is a group of dedicated volunteers who teach decision making skills to inmates at Chester County Prison. The six step process enables the client/inmates to set goals and develop practical plans to reach them. By use of group and one-on-one teaching settings, inmates are able to make the teachings personal and the goals achievable. Thresholds is the largest continuous skills and self help course provided at Chester County Prison. Read more
