Our sincere thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this such a special celebration! We had 140 K2l volunteers, donors, friends, staff and former campers and their families gather to honor our founder, Diane Parrish, and celebrate 20 years of serving children on inmates. Thanks to Ms. Donna, our dedicated Camp Hope photographer, who captured the evening perfectly in pictures - check them out! Look for more photos to come in a special edition of the Newsletter in December! … Read More about 20th Anniversary Gala – What an Awesome Night!
Ending Generational Incarceration
Kidz2Leaders provides stability, opportunity and a Christian community for children of inmates to break the cycle of incarceration.
Having a parent in prison is listed as one of the top Adverse Childhood Experiences, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Our decade-long continuum of programming guides these children toward a life of self-sufficiency, joy, and success at no cost to their families.
Nearly 200,000 children in Georgia have an incarcerated parent.
Up to 70 percent of children of inmates may one day become incarcerated.
Georgia’s prison expenditures total more than $1 billion annually.
Ninety-nine percent of Kidz2Leaders graduates are living free from state or federal incarceration.
In 2018, more than 500 volunteers gave a total of 23,500 volunteer hours to Kidz2Leaders to directly serve 325 children and family members. Since 1999, our programs have impacted more than 1,300 campers, siblings, parents, guardians, and relatives.Support K2L
