Mary Goetze’s work through New Leaf-New Life is marked by compassion and intelligence. The struggle of inmates to remain connected with their young children inspired Mary to create the Read To Me program. Mary’s Read To Me program has enabled 500 incarcerated parents to send recordings of themselves reading a book to their children, improving morale for the parents and providing a bridge over which they can send love to their children.
