"Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope." —Kofi Annan
What we do . . .
Remain in Touch is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that offers incarcerated parents the opportunity to select free books and record them aloud for their children, ages 0 to 12 years. For their older children ages 13 to 18, incarcerated parents are invited to select free books, record introductions, and borrow the same books to read concurrently with their teens. The recordings and books are sent to the individual children, allowing the parents to stay connected and bridge the gap that exists during the time of their incarceration.
we serve . . .
Remain in Touch currently serves inmates in Leelanau County, Benzie County and the Grand Traverse area.
