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 2017, more than 450 volunteers gave a total of 25,600 volunteer hours to Kidz2Leaders to directly serve 250 children and family members. Since 1999, our programs have impacted more than 1,200 campers, siblings, parents, guardians, and relatives.Support K2L
