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
Coming to Camper Neighborhoods this month – Camp2U!
Over the last two weeks our Camp Hope staff has met up with families in locations all across the city: from Powder Springs to Mt. Bethel to Refuge Church downtown to Fairburn! We loved getting to catch up with campers and their guardians while delivering Camp2U boxes and we are looking forward to seeing more families over the next two weeks in Lawrenceville, Decatur, Douglasville, Peachtree Corners, Lithonia and Jonesboro!
Thanks to all our church partners who have graciously provided space in their parking lots for us to meet!
