The Reason For BlastPacks

Our Hope for The Children

  • Get to Know Law Enforcement

    Our bags give Law Enforcement a chance to interact with children who come to visit their parents that are incarcerated. They have fun activities that give children a chance to have conversations with police officers and help pass the time while they wait for their visit.

  • Have a Positive Experience

    Visiting a parent in jail can be scary and confusing for children. We hope children can have a positive perspective of the people who care for their parents and hope they will understand that police officers are not bad people, they are just doing their job.

  • Pass the Time

    Sometimes children end up waiting way longer than they might expect for a visit. These bags offer books to read, toys to play with, coloring books and other activities to help pass the time for a child.

  • They Would Continue Visits

    We hope children have a great experience and want to continue to make visits with their parents. Most kids bring their BlastPacks with them each time they go for a visit. It is important the children realize how pleasant their visitations with their parents can be.
