Children with parents in prison face several challenging circumstances, such as lack of support, guidance, some may witness drug abuse or violence. These children are often traumatized by their parents arrest and may lack moral support. In addition, they are at higher risk for juvenile delinquency and adult criminality. Many caregivers face obstacles including limited financial resources and lack means of transportation.
These children are innocent individuals, who are constantly being punished, yet have done nothing wrong. These children bond with their parents and family members. It is our mission to assist with counseling, provide financial help with clothes school supplies, and free transportation for visitations. To do this, we need as much support that you can give. Your support will be used to assist these children and restore family structure.
