Founded in 2015 in response to the increasing number of children affected by mass incarceration, Children of Incarcerated Caregivers (CIC) is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting the best interests of children when their parents are sentenced to prison or otherwise involved in the criminal justice system.

With the support of our board of directors, we work to support legal and policy changes and innovative programs based on research to advance the welfare of children.

To further our vision and mission, we provide undergraduate, graduate, and law students with career-advancing internship opportunities while advocating for real legal and policy change in the lives of Minnesota children.
