Mission

We support children ages 10-18 being impacted by parental incarceration, Through consistent letter writing, video chats and prison visits, our goal is to strengthen the parent-child relationship. Through group counseling, we create a safe, supportive space that empowers children to identify their emotions and create healthy coping strategies. Through field trips and group outings, we build community amongst young people who are facing the shared experience of having an incarcerated parent. We hope to increase awareness that children of incarcerated parents exist, while helping to reduce the stigma and shame sometimes associated with parental incarceration.
