There are over 100,000 children in the state of Oklahoma who have lost a parent to prison. That’s 10 percent of the state’s children – or two children in every classroom.
Oklahoma Messages Project connects these precious children with their parents through a highly effective prevention and literacy program. Parents read stories to their children on video so the child can see and hear Mom and Dad and improve the parent-child relationship, boost literacy rates, and improve the child’s social, emotional and educational outcomes.
Our program helps to Reduce Anxiety, Boost Self Esteem and Improve Reading in these children who are at risk of substance abuse, delinquency and academic failure.
It only takes $10 to buy a book and $100 to sponsor a child for the year. Keeping a child connected with their incarcerated parent or parents is a tall order, but with your help, we can continue to make it possible. Any amount helps. Contribute Today!
