**Great Gifts & Giveaways, and Light refreshments will be provided** According to a study published in 2015 by Child Trends, some 5 million children, or roughly 7 percent of all children living in the U.S., have a parent who is currently or previously incarcerated. Our youth programs focus directly on meeting the needs of children during the time their parents are incarcerated. Our goal is to reduce the pain and stigma experienced by children, improve communications between the child and the incarcerated parent(s), and make visitation with the incarcerated parent more child-friendly and less traumatic.
