Children of Incarcerated Parents Partnership has as its mission: To foster strong, resilient, hopeful children who are impacted by the incarceration of a loved one. We provide support, resources and services for the children, their caregivers and present and formerly incarcerated family members in the Frederick region. We are an all volunteer non profit that has been established for over sixteen years, but we continue to grow in number of those we serve and number of programs we do.
While there are over 300 men and women in the local Detention center on any given day, that number does not tell the whole story. The majority of this population has children, and the statistics do not show the number of Frederick parents in other facilities around the country. Because we are all volunteer, we are able to put the money raised directly into projects/activities to assist the children we serve.
We are planning to use the money raised to expand our children’s weekend activities and add transportation for special events. We also hope to expand our scholarships at Frederick Community College for those who care for the children and those who are recently released and have children, to expand our workshops for caregivers, to purchase more books for the children, and to help us build our present weekly program for those moms, dads and siblings recently released from jail. Please help us help the children.
