Children of Incarcerated Parent
Having a mom or dad in prison can make growing up difficult. Children with an incarcerated parent often need additional support and guidance.
Big Brothers Big Sisters knows that children who avoid interactions with the juvenile justice system – and violence, drugs, and alcohol - are more likely to succeed. That's why our professional staff members, supporters, families, and advocates support, encourage and champion the relationships between Bigs and Littles. Bigs help teach their Littles right from wrong and help them make good decisions.
We partner with the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice to help fund this program and monitor youth involvement with the Juvenile Justice system while matched with us.
