Children with Incarcerated Parents Resources

Here are some resources that I have found helpful:

A 2015 Child Trends report focusing on children with incarcerated parents

The Bureau of Justice Statistics website, which has lots of information about correctional populations, including midyear reports

The U.S. federal government’s website on children with incarcerated parents

Arrest protocols to safeguard children

The Urban Institute’s portfolio regarding children with incarcerated parents

Parenting Inside Out, the most rigorously evaluated parenting program for incarcerated parents

Sesame Street’s Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration toolkit
