Seventeen years into a ludicrous 35-year sentence, one California felon has made peace in the most literal way possible.
For 11 years, Kamorrie Randle has only known his son Jackson through phone calls and visits to Salinas Valley State Prison
On Fatherâs Day and all year long, organizations like the Place4Grace are working...
Family2Child Literacy Project is a reading program where fathers, mothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and siblings get to read a book to a child they left behind. The audio recordings and books get mailed home to the children.
Our team is available for school administrations and teachers, child welfare/social work and clinical professionals, law enforcement and corrections officials, and any other agency or group that would like to learn more about our work, restorative justice practices for families that are system-impacted, and why they are important and valuable.
I Am Suitable is a 3-hour parole suitability workshop conducted in conjunction with liberated juvenile lifers and other formerly system-impacted individuals. We look at what it takes to come home, with a large focus on insight.
Place4Grace mobilizes families with incarcerated loved ones to use their voices to impact mass incarceration reform. Through advocacy, comes healing and a sense of power that our families are often stripped of.
Camp Grace is a five-day music and art based program in which children spend extended bonding time with their incarcerated fathers.
There are so many ways that you can help Place4Grace! You can donate a children's book for our Family2Child Literacy Project, or arts and crafts supplies for our Camp Grace. You might consider offering your time to help record parents reading a book to their child. Please reach out to Karen McDaniel for information.
âWe can not express enough how this program has impacted our lives. A blessing for my son, his father and myself".
