Hour Children offers comprehensive services to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women which allows them to rejoin the community, reunify with their families, and build healthy and independent lives. Community-based programs include supportive housing, employment training, and licensed daycare while in-prison programming includes advocacy, visitation services and mental health support.
