Keeping Families
Connected During the

This year, GOTB’s annual Mother’s Day and Father’s Day events are postponed due to the pandemic. But we are continuing to serve families through Stay Connected Kits.
Letter writing is an essential way for children to connect with their incarcerated parents, not only as a method of communication, but also as something to hold onto and cherish.
Help us provide a Stay Connected Kit for $15 with stationery and free postage to every child with an incarcerated parent in California this year.

Your support means that families can stay connected during the pandemic and beyond!

Children who maintain contact with their incarcerated parent are less likely to drop out of school and experience behavioral problems. Continued child/parent connection has a positive impact on a child’s wellbeing, including better self esteem, and more parental involvement after release.
