Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents

Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents

Columbus, OH (WOSU) – Mentors can play a big part in the life of a youth, providing someone for them to look up to and maybe give them another perspective on life. Children of an incarcerated parent face a different set of challenges. And if both parents are incarcerated, the child could face the foster care system. A Columbus-based leadership group is working to raise funds to provide life-long mentors for children of incarcerated parents.
