Our vision is for the children of incarcerated parents to realize their parent’s destiny ………does not have to be their destiny, and choose not to follow in their parent’s footsteps.

Last Thursday we celebrated the end of our Summer Day Camp. The youth took a virtual trip around the world and learned about different countries while getting their “passport” stamped. And then we ended up back home in Michigan to be quarantined and practice social distancing 😂 all youth received completion certificates and a bag full of goodies to take home. We are looking forward to the fall🤍

Not familiar with our history? We originated as a grass roots organization in 1999 by Mrs. Shirley Cochran. She and her husband wanted to identify a family who would be separated due to incarceration for Christmas 🎄 so, she distributed applications at the Genesee County Jail but she couldn’t just choose one 😩With assistance from 13 friends and family members, they were able to support all families that year❤️


Fast forward to April 2006, we officially received our permanent 501 C (3) 🙌🏾

Something else that’s important to us, is being aware of our youth’s emotions and helping them to become self aware 😊During programming after check in, the kids choose which emotion they’re currently feeling and drop the feeling in our feelings box 📦 and discuss it with our in house social worker!

They are our future rather you like it or not

When the youth arrives, first thing we like to do is go over affirmations. All of us repeat the affirmation together and then discuss how it relates to our daily lives and goals for the future. Today’s affirmation was, “I get better every day with practice” to remind each other to never give up, keep trying ❤️

“This is better than seeing you on the screen”
Taliah hasn’t seen her three children in 57 days, but they’re about to get one supervised hour together. More than half of all incarcerated women are mothers to children under 18, and support systems like this one are allowing them to attempt to raise their kids while in the system.

Desmond and MCC's Sgt. John Fontana meet weekly through the Big Brother, Big Sister program to talk about life, school, and how Desmond wants to be a police officer when he grows up. Now, their relationship has inspired others on the force to give back and become mentors themselves.
