Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

We focus our efforts on children with an incarcerated parent or parents and support them as they, their parents, caregivers and extended families work to remain a family.

 
Foreverfamily works to ensure that, no matter what the circumstances, all children have the opportunity to be surrounded by the love of family. 
 
Ten million children in the United States have experienced a parent being incarcerated at some point. Nearly two and a half million American kids have a mother or father in prison right now. Those who have witnessed the arrest of their parent must often deal with the effects of this traumatic event for years.
 
Study after study shows that children with an imprisoned mother or father face severe developmental challenges that, if not addressed, can lead to lifelong issues, ranging from difficulty in forming and maintaining healthy relationships to an increased likelihood of being incarcerated themselves. Statistically, children with an imprisoned parent are seven times more likely than their peers to engage in disruptive behavior that leads to their own incarceration.
 
Despite these staggering numbers and the undeniable effects of parental incarceration on communities, those most affected—the children—have remained largely invisible and voiceless.
 
At Foreverfamily, we help these children and youth find their voice. Better yet, we help them feel like part of our family.
