Remembering the Families Separated This Mother's Day
More than half of the incarcerated women in state and federal prisons in this country are mothers to minor children. The average age of those children: 8 years old.
As we celebrate Mother's Day this year, we hope you will remember the moms and children separated by crime and incarceration.
MOTHERS BEHIND BARS
Incarcerated moms have the same hopes and dreams for their children as moms on the outside. Hear from formerly incarcerated mothers about their struggles and hopes for their families.
WHEN FAMILIES SERVE A PRISON SENTENCE
Families with incarcerated loved ones face many challenges. Caregivers and children need support and encouragement.
AN ADVOCATE FOR MOTHERS
Every year, Prison Fellowship Angel Tree™ serves incarcerated parents by giving them a pathway to restore and strengthen relationships with their children and families. And it was started by one woman who watched as her fellow prisoners lovingly pooled their meager resources behind bars to send their children gifts at Christmas.
