A Better Day Than Yesterday Initiative Program (A Better Day) is committed to the reunification of families and strengthening the connection between children and their incarcerated parent(s).
A Better Day Than Yesterday Initiative Program is proud to impact lives of families and children with life-changing services. Learn more about how you can give and get involved in strengthening families affected by Incarceration, Divorce, or Deployment.
In 2016, LeTeisha Gordon, Founder of A Better Day, recognized the need for bridging the gap between incarcerated family members and their children. Ms. Gordon acknowledged the harsh reality that children were devastated by the abrupt loss of their parent(s) and unable to form or maintain a secure connection to their incarcerated parent(s).
She recognized the familiar pain of many children shaken by the sentencing of a parent because Ms. Gordon once walked in the same space.
The American criminal justice system holds more than 2.3 million people in 1,719 state prisons, 102 federal prisons, 901 juvenile correctional facilities, 3,163 local jails, and 76 Indian Country jails as well as in military prisons, immigration detention facilities, civil commitment centers, and prisons in the U.S. territories.
THANK YOU COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDERS FOR HELPING US SERVICES OVER 5000 INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES SINCE 2016
Mrs Gordon the counselors from the time I called for help she didn’t make me feel bad about my situation she was quick to respond to my message and the help I received is beyond what I had expected.
Thank You and the organization
He was great he explained everything to me and he led me to have faith in myself and I could do whatever I want long as I stay on the right track and I can relate to him he was very good with his service.
My experience with you all was great and if it wasn't for you all, I would moved away!
My caseworker was absolutely wonderful. Explained everything to me and made sure he addressed my questions.
He was nice and encouraging. He did a great job.
