Springboard Fund, 2018

Ten Toes In seeks to support, educate, and empower couples after incarceration. By organizing monthly support meetings for women, offering a mentorship program to assist formerly incarcerated men who are married or in relationships, hosting quarterly workshops that teach life and relationship skills, and teaching a course called Intimate Relationships 101 at Avenal State Prison and Pleasant Valley State prison twice a month, Ten Toes In aids couples as they navigate their way back into society. Ten Toes In also educates society on the dynamics of a prison relationship by advocating on the behalf of women who choose to continue relationships with their incarcerated loved ones.
