What we do

Our mission is to provide support services to children of incarcerated parents and their families and to increase public awareness of the underlying problems of these children as victims through education, advocacy and research.

About Us

Where it all began...
"Be the change that you want to see."

SKIP, Inc. Community Resource Services was founded by Mrs. Gloria Jean Canty-Williams in 1976 and incorporated in 1980 in the state of Florida. Mrs. Williams conceived the idea for SKIP as she assisted in a research study conducted by the Hillsborough County Study Commission for Children of Tampa, Florida for The International Year of the Child in 1976. While assisting in this study, Mrs. Williams found that there were no services provided to children of prisoners anywhere in the nation. Thus, began her journey over 35 years ago to help children across America.
