NCASAA Podcast: Helping Children of Incarcerated Parents

Project Family Connect: Working with Children and Youth Impacted by Parental Incarceration

One goal of CASA advocates is to ensure that the youth they serve visit with their biological parents. When their parents are incarcerated, this task is tricky-but certainly not impossible. In this podcast two woman who work on Project Family Connect describe the importance of the parent/child connection while discussing how advocates may overcome obstacles to facilitating meetings between children and incarcerated parents.

Chaves County CASA's Kinship Care Center can also help with these kinds of dynamics. Call Reana Gonzales at 625-0112 for more info and support.
