Hope Through Reading Project - A Prison Ministry of Cassandra Mack Ministries

One of the most life-changing things that we can do as a society for the incarcerated population is to not only provide hope to those who feel lost and forgotten, but to also provide pathways for them to develop the necessary life skills to help them turn their lives around as they prepare to integrate back into society. Skills like: decision-making, problem-solving, emotional coping skills, empathy, goal-setting, respect, stress-management, communication, self-awareness, productivity-planning, relationship-building and confidence building are all life skills that they will need in order to stay out of trouble and become productive citizens. And these are the exact skills, that Cassandra Mack’s personal growth books emphasize and teach.  

Cassandra Mack has been donating a portion of her books to prisons since 2013. Books are a connection to the world beyond the fence – a world that many men and women who are incarcerated will one day return to. 

Some of the prisons that Cassandra Mack has personally donated her books to include: Montgomery Women's Facility in AL, Baylor Women's Correctional Institution in DE, Clinton Correctional Facility in NY, Downstate Correctional Facility in NY, California Institution For Women, Maryland Correctional Institution for Women, North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women, Florida State Prison, the Ohio Reformatory for Women, and the Detroit Reentry Center.

The Hope Through Reading Project is an initiative of Cassandra Mack Ministries that seeks to reduce the sense of hopelessness and desperation that many incarcerated men and women feel by providing them with inspirational books that offer tools for personal development, spiritual growth, better decision-making skills and insights to change their lives for the better. We do this by providing correctional institutions with copies of our books free of charge to stock in their libraries.
