1 in every 28 children in the United States has an incarcerated parent.*

In North Carolina, more than 16,775 children have a parent in prison. According to The Annie E. Casey Foundation, an estimated 198,000 children in the state have experienced parental incarceration and the resulting consequences.

Our Children’s Place of Coastal Horizons Center is a statewide program committed to the well-being of these children through advocacy, education, and outreach.

In order to support children with an incarcerated parent and help them persevere through such a challenging experience, Sesame Workshop launched the Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration initiative. The bi-lingual (English/Spanish) resources include videos and a storybook for children to help support and comfort them, videos and guides for parents and caregivers to help them find the language to talk about incarceration with their children, and a resource for the incarcerated parent that highlights the importance of communication.

For more information, visit the Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration website or contact Our Children's Place.
