"In 2010 it was estimated that there were 2.7 million minor children with an incarcerated parent
in the United States and that at least 10 million children have experienced parental incarceration in their life-times.
Imagine that a member of your family was incarcerated. What would be the emotional toll on your family? “Because higher rates of incarceration tend to occur among residents of neighborhoods already ravaged by poverty and heightened police presence, the effect on children’s education and income as they grow into adulthood creates a cycle of lagging opportunities and resources for entire communities.”
As a church deeply concerned about the welfare of children, helping to restore family stability is a high priority.
