Why I help!! Did you know that a staggering 70% of children of prison inmates, go to prison too? Did you know that 2.7 million children have a parent that is incarcerated? I believe in supporting our community. I believe that "ART HEALS". Living & working in a prison town, I recognize the sufferings of the children, mothers, fathers, spouses & other family members. The families of prisoners face tremendous trials & sufferings; trials of injustice, poverty, isolation, sadness, anger & destruction of family structure - Literally serving the inmate's sentence right along with their incarcerated family member! Many of these families travel very long distances to visit their family members & have little to no money to stay in a hotel or spend money on meals, much less a hot one! There is tremendous hardship on these families because usually the incarcerated family member is the bread winner. I do this in memory of my mom, who made the drive for 16 years.
The main purpose of the Hospitality House is to provide shelter but they strive to make a difference in their visiting families lives as a whole, by providing different programs during their stays.
