Our Mission

Improving the lives of children through shared reading with their incarcerated parents.

Did You Know?

Without programs like OK Messages
  • For kids whose parents are in prison, the chance of juvenile delinquency increases by 300 to 400%. The odds of a serious psychiatric disorder increase by 250%. 
  • The magnitude of their trauma is the same trauma as that of abuse, domestic violence, divorce, or a parent's death.
  • No matter what the parent did, to the children they are still mom and dad, and the child longs for a connection. This relationship is vital for children to thrive.

Our Program

Our program sends each book and personalized DVD from an incarcerated parent to their child with love. Thanks to your continued support, we are able to connect children with their parents in prison. 

OK Messages will be returning to prison this spring to film moms and dads reading to their children! This will fill a huge gap in kids’ hearts and helps them thrive. 

Our board and staff are excited to begin planning our 2021 Kids’ Adventure Day for children of incarcerated parents in Central Oklahoma. It means the world to be able to bring a smile to many children’s faces like this little girl had all day!
