When a parent, or parents, are incarcerated what happens to their children? Often meted out to other family members or foster care, the children of incarcerated parents face unique challenges within our society.
Shattered Lives guest, Marilyn Gambrell, took on the challenge to create programs to assist this segment of children to recognize their worth and better address their needs. Through her organization, No More Victims, Gambrell reaches out to the community, schools, faith based community and corrections departments to address such subjects as teen dating violence, gang involvement, self-injury, teen pregnancy, and supports children through incarceration and the re-entry process of their incarcerated parent.
It's good to talk.
