Faith in Action: Working with Children of Incarcerated Parents

Training Summary

  This 90-minute Webinar informs faith-based and community leaders about alarming trends of youth delinquency, substance abuse, and poor academic attainment due to family instability and the anger that develops as a result of having an incarcerated parent.  Panelists highlight several significant impacts on the health and safety of youth at risk of delinquency due to parent absenteeism due to incarceration; and provide resources that leaders can use to make a positive difference for youth and communities.
