Hour Children® was named to acknowledge the important hours that shape the life of a child with an incarcerated mother – the hour of their mother’s arrest, the hour of their visit, and the hour of her release.
Founded more than 25 years ago, we strive to end the cycle of intergenerational incarceration.
Our mission is to help incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and their children successfully rejoin the community, reunify with their families, and build healthy, independent, and secure lives. To accomplish this, Hour Children provides compassionate and comprehensive services and encourages all to live and interact with dignity and respect.
We are pleased to have been recognized as one of the first Platinum-level participants at GuideStar Exchange, and to have been recognized as one of the 51 organizations receiving a perfect score in the latest ratings from Charity Navigator
