Make the call, so our scholars can afford to answer when their incarcerated parent calls

MAKE THE CALL

Let's make the call together.

#TheCallOfImpact 

 

The Purpose

#TheCallOfImpact is a call to action challenge designed to spread awareness of the silent struggles children with incarcerated parents face. The COVID-19 global pandemic has become a devastating factor in the communication for children of inmates. The financial burden families face daily makes it significantly harder for children to consistently communicate with their parent(s) while incarcerated. 

The Goal

To provide funding support for children of incarcerated parents so they can stay connected with their parents through phone communication and provide family reunification services that will preserve, develop, and improve the relationships between the child and their incarcerated parent.
