When a parent is incarcerated, the family left behind suffers a lot especially the children. Without the protection of their parent they become more vulnerable to issues like poverty, stigma, grief due to separation, child labor, early marriages, among others. In some cases, these children end up on the streets; homeless with no one to care for them and nothing to eat.
Wells of Hope has observed that when children with parents in prison are enrolled on the Education Support program, most of them end up spending most of their holiday time/breaks at school hence a need for each child to have a home where they can be able to receive family love. The project’s mission is to provide homes to children with a parent in prison through family strengthening, family reunification and Foster Care programs.
