One in 28 children in the United States has experienced having a parent in prison. In addition to the trauma and stigma associated with parental incarceration, research shows that children of inmates are three times more likely to become justice-involved.
Kidz2Leaders serves approximately 250 children and family members annually through our four program platforms designed to support a child for more than a decade—starting at age eight and continuing into young adulthood. The K2L platforms include Camp Hope, Interns4Tomorrow, Family Support and the Alumni Community. Over 1,500 children and family members had been impacted by Kidz2Leaders since its inception more than 20 years ago.
However, there are always ways in which we can improve and grow. We are focused on expanding the capacity of Kidz2Leaders to better serve our current participants, as well as expanding our reach to bring more children and families into our continuum.
