With Fathers' Day just around the corner, it's a perfect time to share one of the ways CoreCivic helps incarcerated men stay connected with their kids. At our Red Rock Correctional Center in Eloy, Arizona, inmates can join a program known as "Read to Me." Through the program, dads read books to their kids on video, making a DVD their children receive in the mail along with the book and a handwritten message.When a Red Rock inmate named Joshua heard about the program, he jumped at the opportunity to record a video for his son and daughter. "I don't want my kids to make the same mistakes that I have and I want a better life for them," he said.

See how Joshua's children reacted to the DVD and learn more about the program. WATCH HERE:
