When incarceration hits, it hurts families. We provide crisis intervention, grief support, and resources to help families stay connected.
Approximately 2.7 million children in the U.S. are affected by parental incarceration. Over 40% of these children are under 9 yrs. old. Many children have not been told where their absent parent is. This book, "Jamie's Big Visit: Grownup Timeout (Incarceration) helps a caregiver to have that difficult and "Big" conversation with affected children. It is also estimated that 10 million children face a parent's incarceration in some point in their lives. Your gift can provide direct support to affected children. On a broader scale, we hope to disseminate these books nation wide with the right sponsorship. However, for now, we are happy to provide these publications to those who need these tools.
