Project WHAT!, a program of Community Works, raises awareness about the effects of parental incarceration on children, with the long-term goal of improving services and policies that affect these children.
Project WHAT! stands for We’re Here And Talking, which is exactly what the team is doing. Over 7 million children have a parent under supervision of the criminal justice system—on parole, probation, or incarcerated.
The PW team has reached over 3,800 people through 55+ trainings and presentations. Audiences include caregivers at the San Francisco Department of Children, Youth and their Families Children’s Summit; foster care professionals at the Casey Family Programs Annual “It’s My Life” Conferences; physicians, hospital personnel, and community health workers at Oakland Children’s Hospital; staff and interns at Legal Services for Prisoners with Children; social workers, parole officers, and community service providers at a conference sponsored by the Greater Bay Area Child Abuse Prevention Coalition; educators at the Teachers 4 Social Justice Annual Conferences; and family service providers at Alameda County First 5.
