About

We are a 501c3 tax exempt nonprofit based out of Columbus, OH. We help to assist families who are raising children with an incarcerated parent. We offer food assistance, prison transportation, monetary hardship funds, and mentoring services. In January 2017 we are anticipating the launch of a fairly new program called Creating Lasting Family Connections. This is a 40 hour scientifically proven program which helps to strenghthen families by providing them with knowledge and skills that show how childhood experiences shape our beliefs and behaviors as an adult, show the difference between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, the development of children, characteristics of healthy families, emotional awareness and healthy emotional expression, developing expectations in relationships saying "NO", experience with alcohol and methods for prevention and intervention.
