CHILDREN & YOUTH PROGRAMS
How do you explain to a ten-year-old child that you father or mother is not coming home because they are going to jail? Can you image the confusion and fear a child must feel after receiving this type of news? There is nothing more devastating for a child than experiencing the sudden loss of a parent.
ADULT & FAMILY
A Better Day Than Yesterday Association (A Better Day) serves individuals released from prison or jail in Metro Richmond, who are in need of education, mentorship, housing, job skills training and employment opportunities.
A Better Day Than Yesterday Association is dedicated to providing formerly incarcerated individuals a chance to change. As individuals start the re-entry process, they are determined to start a new life, yet many obstacles block their path to success.
