WHEN PARENTS GO TO PRISON, THEIR CHILDREN'S LIVES CAN BECOME A NIGHTMARE OF POVERTY, TRAUMA, AND SHAME.
But it doesn't have to be that way. We can teach them the coping skills to overcome their experience. We can help them find their inner strength and unlock their future potential.
THIS IS HOUSTON'S PROBLEM
HOUSTON CAN FIX THIS.
We break the cycle of intergenerational incarceration through two programs. More than 125,000 children of incarcerated parents live in the Houston metro area.
We've created an interactive map that shows the way high incarceration rates, poverty and high dropout rates go hand-in-hand. Hover over an area to see rates by zip code.
