Hour Children is a leading provider of prison and community-based services to support currently and formerly incarcerated women and their children as they reunite, stabilize and transform their lives. Hour Children believes the most positive outcomes are realized by children when they are given regular opportunities for engagement with their incarcerated mother. As such, this funding will be used to support The Children’s Centers at Bedford Hills and Taconic Correctional Facilities. Services provided by The Children’s Centers include the teen and pre-teen programs, family transportation and visitation program, the Summer Program, advocacy, parenting education and the parenting activities program. Beginning in 2021, this grant also supports the expansion of these services for mothers jailed or incarcerated for up to a year at the Rose M. Singer Center for women on Rikers Island.
