Family Literacy Program

The purpose of the Family Literacy program is to help parents in incarceration become effective, supportive, active partners in the education of their children.

Strengthening Parent-Child Relationships Through Literature

The Family Literacy program seeks to increase interactions between parents and children to improve academic and behavioral outcomes for children and parents. Such success may be achieved through continuous involvement in children’s education by way of parent-teacher conference calls, interactive reading and tutoring activities.

Program participants will encourage learning and literacy while simultaneously developing stronger relationships with their children that will influence the children’s decision-making around their education.

Achieving Growth Through Phases

The Family Literacy program consists of three phases designed to develop parenting skills and provide opportunities to practice the learned skills through meaningful interactive activities.

Phase I – Foundations of Parenting
Phase II – Parenting in Practice
Phase III – Emphasis on Parental Engagement
