“Listen -if you know me you know I always start my conversation with listen,  here’s the deal! Keeping Families Connected is a 501c3 Organization that came about through a personal passion of my own,” said Founder Leticia Scott-Jackson. “Keeping Families Connected provides free transportation to correctional facilities throughout the state of Texas for individuals who have incarcerated loved one, but we especially love the kids.

I used to be ashamed to tell people that I was wrongfully convicted, but you know what? People gonna talk anyway, so I learned to let people judge and I learned to please God. Because if I please God, at the end of the day I can please his people. So, I started this organization once I came home from the Federal Camp, because I met so many women that did not get to see their children, and family is important to me.”
