by Catie Talarski – I wanted to pass on this information for anyone interested in mentoring youth who have a parent in prison. On the show today Trevor Johnson mentioned that mentoring won’t solve this complex problem – but it certainly can help fill the void left by an absent parent.
From our caller today:
Mentoring Futures Together is an collaborative effort to reach children of incarcerated parents.
It is a partnership with the UConn Health Center; Judah House, a transitional housing facility for women in Hartford; and, the African Caribbean American Parents of Children with Disabilities (AFCAMP), a family advocacy group serving Hartford residents.
Mentoring Futures Together is currently looking for volunteer mentors.
