Let’s Start offers support and programs to these women including:

  • Weekly support groups at Let’s Start and the Clayton jail with follow-up and referrals for housing and employment
  • Monthly parenting sessions
  • A legal clinic that offers free legal advice
  • Prison visitation program so children can visit their moms
  • Individual and group therapy sessions for children
  • Field trips for children to provide respite time for caregivers
  • Monthly group sessions for caregivers
  • Structured activities for children when their moms are at support group
  • Talks in the community about issues that impact their lives
  • “Stories of Hope” – true stories relayed through dramatic presentations
  • Discussions with legislators about policies that affect incarcerated or formerly incarcerated women’s lives and their children’s
