Making a Difference
Oklahoma has the highest rate of incarcerated women in the country – and the second highest for men. 85.3% of the women in prison in the state of Oklahoma has at least one child. This means tens of thousands of children go months or years without one or both of their parents, which creates anxiety, depression, anger and loss of interest in school for these children. As children get to see and hear their parents saying “I love you and miss you. I’m proud of you!,” it helps traumatized children see themselves in a positive way and know that their parents are safe and well.
Our holiday videos filming will be wrapping up soon and we need volunteers to help package and ship the books and DVD’s to the kids in time for the holidays. Please RSVP for December 14th.
