About

Did you know that a child with a parent in prison is significnatly more likely than their peers to be incarcerated themselves later on in life (one study found up to 5 times more likely)? Did you know Oklahoma incarcerates women at a higher rate than anywhere else in the nation (and thereby the world)? New Hope Oklahoma works with youth 5-18 who have/have had an incarcerated parent, with the mission to end generational incarceration.

Among other services, we provide community groups that serve as both a support group and a learning opportunity. Children come to our location from over 20 area schools. Prior to our groups (which utilize an evidence-based ccurriculum to help our kids build resiliency and develop social and emotional skills), we provide a snack, and opportunities to socialize and build relationships. Spend time with our kids, playing games, helping with homework, or just chatting! Sign up to serve as a caring adult mentor today!
