New Life Stories
Description of Organization
New Life Stories supports families to break the cycle of poverty and incarceration through quality early childhood learning, personal growth and parenting engagements. We support children with incarcerated parents, the incarcerated and their families to help them create new life stories. We aim to prevent intergenerational incarceration, reduce re-offending, improve quality of life and increase community inclusion for the families. Our Family Strengthening Programme takes on a more holistic approach to ensure that each child receives vital educational assistance, while their parents are supported during their incarceration, and during their reintegration into society.
Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme
The funds raised will go towards funding our Family Strengthening Programme and will impact approximately 555 direct service users, which includes the child, the incarcerated parent and their family members. The amount will allow us to achieve our short, medium and long-term outcomes. It is an investment in the child’s, and our society’s, future.
Engaging and involving the YFC participants
Due to the sensitive nature of our beneficiaries, the team may not be able to interact with the children or the incarcerated parents. However we are planning for some upcoming mass workshops with corporate partners and will invite the team to observe these sessions.
