New Hope provides resiliency and prevention programs for children with a parent in prison. Each at-risk child receives the Five Promises that all children need to become responsible adults. (America’s Promise Alliance):
- Healthy development
- Caring adults
- Effective education
- Safe places
- Opportunities to help others
New Hope currently serves nearly 400 children. Through our work, we are giving New Hope to the growing and at-risk group of children who have a parent in prison in Oklahoma. Through the generous support of our community, New Hope serves Oklahoma children with year round after school programs, retreats, and social opportunities as well as camping and mentoring programs in the summer.
One in five Oklahoma children goes to bed hungry. At every New Hope event, children are not only offered emotional support but also given a meal and sent home full- often with additional food.
