“Someone to Watch Over Me”
Goal and Vision:
To provide the children of recently released, adjudicated and or incarcerated parents a safe place, a place to be heard and safe relationships that will enhance and improve their lives.
- In 1995, CSC began to address children that were “falling through the cracks.”
“Someone to Watch Over Me” provides the children of recently released and incarcerated offenders with opportunities to enhance their life experiences. This program is the perfect opportunity for children of recently released and incarcerated parents to communicate about the disempowering experience of incarceration and separation, as well as the chance to enjoy fun activities. Working with the faith based community, local non profit organizations and local universities, this project encompasses not only the child, but also the caregiver and /or parent /guardian.
The program is open to minor children whose parents have been released from incarceration, are incarcerated, are under supervision.
What Can You Do?
The CSC needs the assistance of interested community members to:
- Sponsor – support activities that provide the children with cultural enhancement fun.
- Volunteer – offer support to the program, parents and/or guardians.
- Support/Self-help groups are available to the caregivers of incarcerated children.
