Keeping Families Connected: Supporting Parenting in the Context of Incarceration

In the United States today, more than 5 million children, or 7% of all children, have a parent who is or has been incarcerated. Minnesota’s model jail practices learning community brings together staff from jail facilities and community partners at the state and local levels to help implement policy, systems, and environmental changes that benefit children of incarcerated parents and their families. Join our conversation and explore strategies to support families dealing with the stress of the loss of a parent to incarceration.
