Children Of Promise, NYC

Our Local Charity Project

In the United States, 2.7 million children have an incarcerated parent. In New York alone, there are 105,000 children living under these circumstances. Children impacted by incarceration often face uncertainty and trauma from changing living arrangements, including moving from one caregiver to the next or being separated from their siblings. Beyond these stressors, children with an incarcerated loved one may struggle with the stigma and shame of having a parent in prison. At Children of Promise, NYC (CPNYC), the mission is to embrace children of incarcerated parents and empower them to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system.

CPNYC’s innovative model transforms the lives of children of prisoners through holistic support services offered in an empowering environment. Located in a Brooklyn community highly impacted by mass incarceration, the agency provides mental health services, one-to-one mentoring, academic support, arts education, family engagement, social justice initiatives and recreational activities for youth ages 6-18 and their caregivers such as single parents, grandparents, foster parents or extended family members.
