Children of Incarcerated Parents
Posted in the Utah County Forum
#1 Jan 28, 2009
Did you know that about 1.5 million children have a mother or father serving time? That children of prisoners are 80% more likely to follow their parents footsteps to prison? This is a huge problem and only getting worse as caregivers, usually a single parent, a grandparent or an aunt and uncle of these children try to stay a float and care for them. We need help in Utah County to reach out to this group of people that society often scorns and neglects: prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families.
Are you willing to forget the stereotypes, contribute to restoring peace to our cities and communities by transforming the people within our community and help build new futures for those behind bars, those coming out and those left behind?
