Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation and Women Ablaze Ministries bridges the gap behind bars for incarcerated parents and their children with a gift of 700+ books and 158 home libraries
Christmas, 2021, we partnered with the Governor's Early Literacy Foundation of Tennessee and ministered to 158 children of incarcerated parents by sending them Home Libraries. and books that centered around each individual child's interests.
We interviewed some of mothers and asked them what it meant to them.
“My daughter is nine and very smart, talented, and creative and she will just love this,” said Loren, a participating mother with one child. “Since I won't be home for Christmas, it’s like I'll still be there for her. I am very excited about this!”
“I like that this is being sent to my children from me, and the books will encourage them to read more,” said Ashley, a participating mother with two children. “They love to read, and this will help them bond with me and my family. It will let my children know that I am thinking of them.”
“This means a lot to me because I do not get to talk with my children much,” said Tara, a participating mother with three children. “It is a way that I can be in contact with them and that will mean a lot to them. I am so happy that something is coming from me to them.”
