Community Outreach Programs
The Storybook Project

Through a creative reading initiative, this program offsets the negative effects caused by a prolonged separation between an incarcerated mother and her child. NAWJ’s Storybook Project has helped thousands of inmate mothers maintain contact with their children.

NAWJ program participants provide incarcerated parents with a book and a tape recorder so that mothers can read the story to their child and preserve an oral recording of the book. Both the book and mother’s recording are then mailed to the child, thereby enabling the parent to sustain a relationship and strengthen the bond with the child.
