The GEMS Program

Gaining Empowerment in Middle School

In the Houston Metro Area alone, more than 43,000 middle school age children have had an incarcerated parent. It is a hidden epidemic. Even if they don't talk about having a parent in prison, the shame and emotional scars are still there. GEMS shows middle school students that the past doesn't have to define their futures.
