Uncle Pokey Enterprises exists to bridge the divide between men and woman in prison and those who love and support them through signature greeting cards.
Through personal experience Uncle Pokey, and those that love and support him, learned that incarceration can be a sudden and devastating change in environment and circumstance. Whatever the offense, everyone involved with the correctional system must immediately adjust to a mostly indirect and often supervised communication environment, and to rules that are not designed to be helpful to the inmate or his family.
Those who support an inmate find themselves in an unfamiliar situation. They are looking for information and support in helping their loved one, but don’t know where to turn. Added to this are the complications (transportation, time from work, etc.) associated with visits to correctional facilities, and the lack of privacy and length of telephone conversations leaves many important things unsaid between an inmate and those who care. This situation often creates a gap between the inmate and their support that only grows over time.
Our vision is to be a meaningful resource for those separated from loved ones and those separated from Jesus. Uncle Pokey Enterprises exists to bridge the gap between men and woman in prison and those who love and support them through products and services that express the unspoken, share the comedy of life and link them to supporting resources. All to fulfill the call of Jesus – “I was in prison and you came to me.” (Matthew 25:36)
Please support our efforts.
