Angel Tree Program Helps Families Separated by Prison

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - It can be easy to forget about the human toll that incarceration has on families.

Many people sent to jail in Arkansas leave behind spouses and children.

One group is doing its part to keep those family bonds strong.
The Angel Tree Program is meeting some crucial needs. It's a program of Prison Fellowship® that serves incarcerated parents by providing a pathway for strengthening and restoring their relationships with their children and families. Prison Fellowship mobilizes local churches and community organizations to give hundreds of thousands of children a gift, the Gospel message, and a personal message of love on behalf of their incarcerated parent. In addition, partner churches meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of prisoners' families through year-round ministry such as camping and mentoring.
