About Read In, Read Out

Program Coordinator Kailyn Richards

The Read In, Read Out Program is a collaborative project of the Department of Correction, the Delaware Center for Justice, and Read Aloud Delaware. Selected parents are able to record themselves reading age-appropriate books to their children. The resulting recordings are then sent, along with the books and an inexpensive cd player, to each child. In this manner, incarcerated parents are better able to preserve a bond with their children, improve their communication and parenting skills, and ease their transition back to their families and to the community.
