The Impact of Incarcerated Parents on Children
October 22 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Incarceration is a factor that greatly impacts our community but isn’t widely talked about; especially the impact it has on dependent children. Children are often ignored, voiceless and not necessarily seen as having rights when it comes to their own well being or their parent’s situation.
This presentation will delve into the rights children have, as well as resources and supports that can be used to help children have a safe, stable, and nurturing environment in the circumstance of an incarcerated parent.
This presentation will be held at the Center for Urban Families and will be facilitated by Eliza Cooper. Through her business Live Holistically Balanced and as a Community Anchor she partners with community organizations to provide Holistic Health education, relationship and community engagement classes, workshops and events.
Eliza is a member of the Steering Committee for Baltimore City’s Thriving Communities Collaborative, Maryland Parent Leadership Team at the Family Tree of Maryland, an Adult Organizational Volunteer for University of Maryland Extension Baltimore City 4-H Youth Development program and an alumnus of the FRIENDS National Center for Community Based Child Abuse Prevention Parent Advisory Council.
