for children of prisoners and their families

More than 2.7 million children in the U.S. have an incarcerated parent and approximately 10 million children have experienced parental incarceration at some point in their lives.”(see Rutgers 2014 Fact Sheet). Since 1979, SKIP, Inc. has provided programs and services for children of prisoners and their caregivers. Our experience and research indicate that many children in America are at the risk of academic failure and poor physical or mental health. The highest achieving students are those who are supported by their family, school, and the community. Join us in our shared youth vision initiatives to help children across America to become self-reliant, strong and healthy adults.
