Redeeming the Family exists to help reconnect children with their parents through the Messages from Mom and Messages from Dad DVDs and books that we film in prison. When kids get these loving, positive messages from their parents, they know they are loved, missed, and not forgotten–and whether their parents are behind bars for a long time or a short sentence, it’s a priceless gift to the children and makes a big difference in their lives. They listen to the Messages countless times and have a bedtime story read by mom and dad and follow along with the book. It reduces the kids’ anxiety, boosts their self-esteem and reading skills, and contributes to their overall well-being.
They have several programs including: Oklahoma Messages Project, Semi-Annual Book Drives, and Parenting and Literacy Programs.
