This all began by a personal encounter with the struggle of making ends meet while a family was divided by bars. So many fail to notice the monumental need that children have while their parents are incarcerated to be integrated into the same opportunities as their peers. More importantly, we can fail to realize how this division effects our children’s lives and how it will undoubtedly, without help, effect our children’s futures.
The Fair Chance Project Inc. started in the hearts of My Husband, Nolan and mine. Nolan is currently doing a life sentence in a Georgia State Prison. We have a 19 year old son and a 13 year old daughter. We know personally the effects of having a parent incarcerated. We saw the need for these children. We believe that there's no need to talk about it, because the truth of what one says lies in what one does.
1) Caring And Consistent Relationships
2) Engaging School And Community Settings
3) Reachable Goals
4) Positive Support
Seeking a tutor to circumvent falling grades can build academic success in the future, and the child will enjoy school more as a result. Tutors provide academic assistance and support, which can help anyone who is struggling with a difficult subject. Since tutors often act as academic mentors, there are many ways they can provide help for the child.
There’s little doubt that learning to play a musical instrument is great for developing brains.
Science has shown direct evidence that music training has a biological effect on children’s developing nervous systems.
What is an Accountability Partner?
An Accountability Partner is a person who coaches another person to help the other person keep a commitment. Is this you?
The Fair Chance Project hosted their 1st Annual Fall Festival thanks to New Vision Baptist Church in Dallas Ga for allowing us the privilege of having it there. Lots of games and fun!
All this little boy wanted was a bike from his daddy for his birthday. The Fair Chance Project was able to assist his father, who is incarcerated, to be able to make this happen. Building and strengthening relationships one child at a time!
Tori Boatright has been effected by having a parent incarcerated since she was 14 months old. She loves to support The Fair Chance Project so that kids know that just because their parent (s) may be locked away they are still loved by others as well. She wants to stop the Stigma!!
