HOPE FOR IMPRISONED MOMS AND THEIR KIDS
We envision every family impacted by the criminal justice system living free of the entrapments of poverty, incarceration, and recidivism.
Breaking the generational cycle of incarceration through care, housing, and education of pregnant imprisoned women and their babies.
"Knowing my baby was with Susan and Pharaoh's Daughter was the number one thing that kept me at peace in prison."
We house and care for the babies born to inmates from their birth to the release of their mother. This includes everything that comes with being a surrogate parent; from nightly feedings to tummy time! However, the most important part of Baby Care is weekly visits with their mother at the prison, this keeps the bond strong between mom and baby and motivates mom to succeed.
Once mom is released, the next major step is earning a livable wage. We start with career counseling, followed by whatever action necessary to accomplish what she needs to achieve that goal: GED, associate degree, certification, etc. We provide all living expenses while she pursues the requirements of sustainable living.
We mentor both mom and baby for the duration of their time at Pharaoh's Daughter, stressing a healthy whole-family unit, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Our program is tailored to each mother and includes parenting and financial classes, individual counseling, and living by a schedule to effectively manage her new life style.
Behind the Scenes
We are the everyday "Janes and Joes" who are working tirelessly in the background to break the cycle of incareration and poverty in families by providing housing, structure, and family care to single mothers leaving prison. From discussions with our senator to see that laws are changed in favor of pregnant incarcerated women and their children, to daily fundraising and canvasing, we are hard at work!
