Project WHAT

Project WHAT 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.
(18)

The program employs young people who have experienced parental incarceration as the primary curriculum content developers and facilitators for trainings.

Mission: Project WHAT! (PW) raises awareness about the effects of parental incarceration on children, with the long-term goal of improving services and policies that affect these children.
