What People Are Saying
I got a good feeling of connection with my children and will keep feeling this connection till I get out at the end of next year. It’s been 7 years since I heard from them, and now I feel better. Thank you.
I have an immense love for my 3 nephews and this allows me to be in their lives one way or another. This allows me to display a small token of my love and appreciation for them. Thank you for the opportunity.
“The music and art component help by using it like an ice breaker. It helps our kids feel happy and for them to have a good time with their dad. It helped because with the music we danced and in a way got them to open up. And the art got us to talk with each other and see what we would like to do together. While we were doing art we would just spend time talking and have that feeling of family time. To be able to see their art work and be able to help them, hands on for the first time. And for my kids to have those memories whenever they see the art and craft we have done. You can also say that by music or art they can show how they feel – and that whole week they showed happiness”

“I was stuck in a cycle of bad choices and appearances, so I was a lot more angry or aggressive. So I would fight and or get into altercations with individuals. But that changed the moment I realized you had to be 115 clear (no write-ups) for one year to participate in this program. I started to let go of a lot of things that normally I wouldn’t of before”

Even though my kids are miles away, I felt as though we were reading together.
