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. To get kids to this unique opportunity, our staff drive all over town to pick up children from their schools, homes, or other community locations. We are in need of adults both to spend time on-site with our kids, playing games, helping with homework, or just chatting! Sign up to serve as a caring adult mentor today!
