We take children on bus trips to visit their incarcerated parents and encourage dialogue on the need to help children whose parents are imprisoned.

Families struggle with many challenges when a parent is incarcerated. It’s so nice seeing these beautiful smiles, while they were all together.

Look what my dad and I made inside a correctional institution – it’s a Lego monster. Yikes!

It’s Father’s Day….“He’s my daddy – I love him.”

They couldn’t go out to eat at a restaurant. So we brought the restaurant to them on our bonding visit at a correctional institution. The pizza wasn’t so hot – but that’s ok, no one complained!

Folding the flag…It’s an activity we do during our 4th of July bonding visits. Why? This encourages civic pride. It also brings our kids and their incarcerated parents closer together to discuss values and share experiences.

Are you a child of an incarcerated parent? If so, please share BELOW your best moments with your mom or dad while he or she was incarcerated. We’ll share your experiences with our children.

Group photo – it’s the last thing we do at our bonding visits so our kids can remember the day with their incarcerated parents. Some kids are smiling, some are sad. It’s a bittersweet moment before our kids say goodbye until their next visit together. #MakingMemories

Children listen to their incarcerated parents. Fathers in our program stay in the lives of their children, often giving pep talks to stay clear of trouble.
And it works. Most of our kids don’t end up repeating their parents' mistakes.

Many families have Sunday night dinners to catch up on what’s important. Our families can't do that. So we bring same concept to lunches during our visits to institutions. Over pizza and wings, our families get to be themselves, enjoying rare time together. #MakingMemories

Saying goodbye is never easy…Our bonding visits are packed with many memorable moments. So, when the time comes to head home, it’s hard to hug dad and say goodbye...The good news: we bring the children back every 3 months!

Quoted @yayizzle22

I had the honor to accompany COI on a trip back in 2014. It really is important to continue the parent child bond no matter the bars that separate them. It was both❤ warming and❤ breaking, an experience I hold dear. This program is great, wish I had it as a child.

Beautiful said. Thanks Sasha!

A child needs to regularly see her mom, even if mom is in a correctional institution. We take kids every 3 months to see their incarcerated parents in facilities across #FL. It's to create positive memories for our kids who need positive memories in their lives.

Babies need to see their incarcerated parents, too. Our Babies N’ Brains program encourages families to bring babies on our bonding visits to the facilities. This way, these kids learn early on that their parents love them, even if they are incarcerated.

Father-son talk…We encourage our incarcerated parents to speak in frank, direct terms with their children about staying clear of trouble. It's the best way to keep our youth from making the same mistakes as their parents.

Her smile is precious…Many of our kids suffer from trauma caused by separation from their incarcerated parents. Nothing warms our hearts like getting our kids together with their moms/dads and seeing them play together and smile. Yes, the smiles are the best part!

It’s going to crash!...Our children play lots of games with their incarcerated parents during our visits. We want to encourage bonding -- and games bring people together, especially a stack-crashing game!

Our organization has just 1 goal: help children of incarcerated parents become happy, healthy and productive citizens. For our kids, that often requires seeing their parents on a regular basis in correctional facilities-- so they know their moms or dads are safe. #LoveOurKids

For a child, there’s nothing more important than feeling the love of his mother – no matter who she is or where she is.
