Resources for Children with Incarcerated Parents
Children with incarcerated parents have unique social and emotional needs. As a reentry program, we do our best to provide services that benefit our participants AND their children in the most helpful ways possible. If you know of a child in need, we hope that these resources are helpful.
ANGEL TREE PROGRAM - Angel Tree® is a program of Prison Fellowship that serves incarcerated parents by providing a pathway for strengthening and restoring their relationships with their children and families. Through Angel Tree, volunteers deliver a gift, the gospel, and a personal message of love to children on behalf of their mom or dad in prison. Parents are provided with a free copy of the Bible as well. It starts with a gift and leads to restored relationships. CLICK HERE to visit their website.
