Through mentoring, education and support, Parenting With Purpose will bring healing, restoration and liberty to families affected by incarceration.

Bringing kids together with similar backgrounds to experience a positive and encouraging environment

Everyone in our mentoring program is encouraged to attend this monthly support group, which focuses on biblical principles for personal growth. In this group, youth receive a healthy lunch (prepared by Lunches of Love), a message of hope and encouragement, and an opportunity to talk among peers about the issues they experience.
