How you can help year round...

Mother’s & Father’s Day- provide a gift or a gift card – so that a child can give their parent a present. 

Back to School time- each August we publish a list of the number & ages of the children in our programs that need back to school supplies. You and a group of friends or co-workers can get together and make a big impact.  Purchase and donate a backpack and/or school supplies for children of prisoners or make a donation so we can purchase specialized supplies

Holiday Time-each November we publish a list of the number & ages of the children in our programs that need holiday gifts. Purchase a holiday gift/gift card for children of prisoners or make a donation so we can purchase needed gifts.  Make a donation to the agency so that we can host a family event at the holiday time, a holiday party in the community or a special bus ride to visit their loved one in prison.

Birthday’s – Birthday’s happen year round.  Throughout the year we provide support and care for children and families of prisoners, you can help by purchasing a gift or gift card for children of prisoners so they can have something special.
