The Place4grace

Mission: ​Providing services and programs aimed at restoring families and advocating for children impacted by incarceration.

Background: Our Family2Child Literacy Program aims to keep families impacted by incarceration connected, through reading. Men and women are recorded reading a book of their choice to children left behind. Each book includes a loving personalized inscription. The books, along with the audio recordings are mailed to the children, allowing them to hear the voice of their loved ones and read along with the recording. The program is present in 16 prisons throughout the state of California, and since 2011, over 8,700 men and women have participated, reaching over 18,000 children as far away as New York, Mexico, and India.
