What We Do

Many children of incarcerated parents have not spoken, seen or in anyway communicated with their parents in weeks, months and sometimes years. Every month, we ask children to upload letters and pictures that they would like to send to their parents. Photo Patch prints, packages, and ships the mail on their behalf.
