Abstract:
This guide is designed to help your community take a leadership role in supporting your most at-risk children to experience more stable childhoods, meet their developmental milestones, and build the skills they need to enjoy brighter futures as active members of society.In Canada, children who experience parental incarceration are statistically more likely than any other group to one day come into conflict with the law themselves. This is due to a combination of the stress and trauma it causes, along with the impacts of other challenges these children commonly experience: poverty, unstable home environments, and family members who may be homeless, have mental health issues or struggle with addiction.Communities have the power to make a positive difference. Not only will your support provide immediate benefits for children, it can be impactful enough to improve their life outcomes into adulthood. Helping these critically at-risk children now will help create stronger, healthier communities for everyone.
