About the Owner

 

My name is Tanya, and I grew up in Sacramento, California. I started this company from my own experience. My dad has been incarcerated since 1996, when I was 9 years old. Growing up, every holiday, occasion, and birthday, I always had a really hard time finding a card that fit my family's situation. Being so limited on what I can send him, a card stands out and is like a present. My dad is 63 years old, so I want to be able to provide my dad with a steady job when he comes home and continue to grow BigHouse together.

Now that I'm an adult, I want to contribute to this community that I have been a part of for most of my life. I also want to educate mainstream society by dismantling myths and stigmas that are very harmful towards incarcerated and prior incarcerated people.

We may be physically apart, but truly, our hearts are together everyday.
