New program lets inmates read books virtually to their children


There’s so much society overlooks when it concerns its citizens and correctional facilities.

One of the biggest issues our culture brushes aside? How to support family members and relatives of people who are in these facilities. Plus, children are the most impacted by having one or more parents in these facilities.

A Father’s Voice,” a new program at a correctional facility in South Carolina is trying to changing that oversight. The program lets inmates to record themselves reading books for their children, which helps them to strengthen the bond with their families.
