Mission Statement

Breaking the cycle of broken homes one family at a time by reducing recidivism and providing families with the resources to thrive while having an incarcerated loved one.

Description

Unlocking Futures is a nonprofit geared towards helping families who have a child with an incarcerated parent. The idea for the organization came about as a result of the founder's own experience with raising a child with an incarcerated parent and while doing so, she lacked a support system. Her and her child experienced many hardships and found that there werent any community agencies providing support to families after their loved one became incarcerated. So, she founded Unlocking Futures.

Unlocking Futures provides a Mentoring program, Prison transportation, and a program called Generational Leadership in which an evidenced-based curriculum is used to help youth and adults to develop healthy communication skill sets while also teaching drug and alcohol prevention as well. In addition, to these services the organization offers the following supportive services in collaboration with other local agencies: rental assistance, gas, electric, and water assistance, behavioral health, and life coaching.
