About

Did you know that a child with a parent in prison is significantly 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 world? New Hope Oklahoma works with youth 5-18 who have/have had an incarcerated parent, with the mission to end generational incarceration. We provide after school programs, holiday parties, case management, summer camps, and overnight retreats, among other services.

Among other services, New Hope provides community groups, where children of incarcerated parents develop social, emotional, and leadership skills. Prior to our groups, we provide a snack, and opportunities to socialize and build relationships. We also serve dinner. Volunteers are needed to spend time with our kids playing games, helping with homework, or just chatting! Sign up to serve as a caring adult mentor today!
