Here are just 3 reasons why Photo Patch Foundation was created. Hopefully they will inspire you to help us help them:
Help eliminate the stigma of parental incarceration.
“There is only one way to look at things until someone shows us
how to look at them with different eyes.” – Pablo Picasso
Children of incarcerated parents commit no crime, but endure much of the punishment. By creating a stable support system, we can provide an environment that allows children to express themselves without fear of judgment.
You’ll help a child beat the odds
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall” – Nelson Mandela
In order for a child to overcome the
traumatic event of a parent incarceration, the
1) Have a reliable support system
2) Maintain a positive, healthy relationship with his or her parent
3) Be free of the stigma that accompanies incarceration
A lot of help is needed, but it
starts with you
“Every child is my child”
Research has found that children with incarcerated parents are at significantly higher risk than their peers to eventually become incarcerated one day themselves.
If we are able to reach these children before they fall into the cycle of intergenerational incarceration, there is hope for a brighter future.
Contribute today and you’ll give these children the means to express themselves to their parents.
And did we mention that we’ll do all the work for you: Print. Package. Seal. Ship. Confirm.
