The Need: On any given day in Raleigh, North Carolina, you can find approximately 60 imprisoned pregnant women facing the decision of what to do with their newborn baby, when they must return from the hospital--empty handed--to prison. So often their only choices are to trust their baby to a relative and to the same broken environment they grew up in, or risk permanently losing their child by handing the baby over to the foster care system.
Our Solution: A third and multi-faceted option of caring for these babies while their mothers are incarcerated, providing transitional housing after release, and equipping the mothers with education and life skills they'll need to live independently and successfully. This innovative approach lets us leverage the parent-child bond, reaching two generations at once to help them change their life stories.
Our Mission: Hope for Pregnant Incarcerated Women and Their Babies in Breaking the Generational Cycle of Poverty, Incarceration, and Recidivism.
