CIC has four main initiatives. Within each, we continue to explore, question, research, and promote viable solutions that will strengthen families and improve the lives of children affected by parental incarceration.

Sentencing Project

Making an impact at the time of sentencing

Stay Connected Project

Seeking ways to promote and improve visitation and communication, so children can stay connected with their incarcerated parents.

Community Awareness

Sharing research and experience with the community.


Learning from international standards and successes.
