A new program designed to support Baltimore City minor children of parents who are currently or recently incarcerated will launch this spring thanks to a multi-agency partnership and U.S. Department of Justice grant.

B’More Reconnects will provide parenting skill development for parents to address the needs of their children; training for correctional officers to respond to the needs of parents, children, and families during visitation; examine visitation policies at City correctional facilities; and support community-based services to meet the needs of parents and the whole family upon re-entry.

“The Institute for Innovation and Implementation is thrilled to be a part of this important work providing project management and ongoing evaluation of the project activities to assess and ensure positive outcomes for Baltimore City youth, parents, and their families,” said Kate Sweeney, MSW, B’More Reconnects project director and co-director of Parent, Infant, and Early Childhood, The Institute.
