Supporting and Enriching the Lives of Children with a Parent in Prison
AVARY begins working with children in elementary school, and continues with them through young adulthood. Our program is made up of four complementary programs: Camp AVARY, Adventure Days, Teen Leadership, Family Unity.
Through these programs we work to develop the skills, confidence, and positive life views that promote healthy personal development and responsibility to community.
1. Project AVARY helps break family cycles of violence and incarceration.
2. Children of inmates are 4-6 times as likely as their peers to end up in prison themselves.
