Unique Programs

 

This is a faith based non-profit organization that offers a marriage and family strengthening project developed specifically to address the unique obstacles families face when one partner is incarcerated for more than six months.  The program works with both parents not only to ensure healthy marriages and strong families, but also to ensure successful reentry of the inmate, stop incarceration within family of inmates, reduce recidivism for ex-offenders and reduce negative behaviors among children of inmates.

The reading rooms encourage family literacy by providing a pleasant and comfortable setting for both child and incarcerated parent. Each room is stocked with a wide variety of children’s books and has an inmate narrator who reads to the visiting children twice a day. The role of the inmate narrator is to read picture books to the children in much the same manner that children’s hour would be done at a public library. A variety of arts and craft supplies for the children are also available in most of the rooms. Many of the supplies and books are donated by employees and service organizations.
