|Nonprofit brings families and their incarcerated loved ones together with free holiday portraits|
PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A Philadelphia nonprofit that works with ex-offenders has teamed up with photographers to provide free holiday portraits for families with loved ones who are incarcerated.
"When you are incarcerated, you miss so many family memories," said J. Jondhi Harel, founder of The Center for Returning Citizens, which helps formerly incarcerated individuals reintegrate into society. This weekend, the organization will transform its office into a photo studio where families will come to take portraits.
"And a portrait is a frozen moment in time — it's a memory that can be shared and you'll always have it," he said.
