Alabama Folk’s Art Project
The Alabama Folk’s Art Project was created to help individuals in difficult life situations feel self-worth and appreciation by creating artwork. Aid to Inmate Mothers (AIM) reunites mothers in prison with their children by providing monthly visitation and other programming to ensure that each family maintains strong bonds during the difficult period of incarceration.
AIM also provides education and re-entry services to formerly incarcerated women. Additionally, AIM administers a variety of in-prison classes, like The Alabama Folk’s Art Project, that prepare women for life after release. When their art is sold, they benefit financially, and have pride and hope for their future.
