What’s it worth to save a life?
Nobody wants to hear about inmates or jails or prisons; better left swept under the rug. In this climate
of social hygiene, our “Corrections” system better serves as “The New Ghetto.” Rehabilitation has evolved into a foreign concept. What happens when the men and women are released? An astonishing two-thirds of ex-prisoners will re-offend within three years.
We believe that our program makes a difference and we believe that the choice of reading material has an enormous impact on the quality of life both behind walls and after release.
Typically, most book recipients in our program tell us that their shipment will be shared with dozens of other inmates. That means that every dollar goes a long way in benefiting the lives of many.
