2022 Heroes In The Hood Youth 2nd Cohort: Our Parent Engagement Model Works

Here at the Offender Alumni Association, we believe in the power of parent involvement in the youth component of our Heroes in the Hood program. One key component of Heroes in the Hood is that parents must commit to consistently being a part of the process. According to a Vera Institute of Justice publication, “Identifying and engaging family and community members to help juveniles throughout the juvenile justice system can improve mental health, reduce behavioral problems, provide motivation, and lower the rate of recidivism.” Our Heroes in the Hood program encourages parents to engage before youth incarceration. 

Below are photos highlighting the success of our model. If you are interested in donating to our cause, please email us at ddaniels@offenderalumni.org.
