Foreverfamily is a nonprofit organization that focuses on the needs of children with incarcerated parents. Our sole purpose is to fulfill a vital role in every child’s life that we encounter. We want to ensure that we are aiding each of them so that they can have successful futures.
We are using #GIVINGTUESDAY to reach our goal for the holidays. It is a world generosity movement that occurs on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This movement was created as a day to encourage people to do good. On December 1st, you and others can donate to help transform this organization so that we can continue to do our work and fulfill our purpose.
Due to COVID-19, this year has been exceedingly difficult. In-person visitations and our in-house programming have been discontinued since March. This causes strain on many of our families. It is important that we maintain relationships and build bonds between families while their loved ones are incarcerated, especially during this time.
Everyone has been missing their friends, families, and loved ones this year. We’re missing out on events, holidays, and traditions with them. This is the reality that our children face all the time, which has been further exacerbated by the pandemic.
At Foreverfamily, we are keeping our families connected through virtual programming. We offer virtual tutoring, a child-parent pen pal program, and technology training to help our children’s caregivers navigate through the virtual world and thereby allowing them to help the children with distance learning.
We have also been keeping families connected by providing funds for video visitation, stationery for letters, and funds for emails and phone calls. Your donation this Holiday Season will help to make it super special to our children!
You can donate to help us in the following ways:
$15 for daily emails for our parents and children
$25 twice-weekly phone calls
$30 for rideshare gift cards
$50 for a grocery store gift card
$100 for a tablet with shipping included
While we display specific amounts to donate for specific necessities, Foreverfamily accepts and appreciates any donations provided! The holidays can be very hard to get through because our families miss their loved ones, but we do our best to give as much as we can through food and holiday gifts to brighten their days!
