Mission Statement

Our mission is to embrace the children of incarcerated parents and empower them to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system. CPNYC provides a unique integrated service model, year-round, to meet the distinctive needs of children with incarcerated parents. The organization currently provides comprehensive academic enrichment, mentoring and mental health services in an after-school and summer day camp setting. The agency is the only after-school program and summer day camp, in New York City, designed specifically to meet the needs, interests and concerns of children left behind by parental incarceration.

Description

CPNYC’s mentoring program, Project DREAM (Directing Realities through Exposure, Access & Mentoring), provides children of imprisoned parents, ages 8-18, with one-to-one matches with screened and trained mentors, as part of the agency’s larger mission to break the cycle of intergenerational incarceration. Project DREAM offers mentoring matches the opportunity to participate in trips and activities which build the mentoring relationship. Each mentor receives extensive training and support, on an on-going basis and each child in the program receives mental health counseling, academic support and interventions, and opportunities to participate, with their mentor, in recreational and educational activities and outings.
