Supporting Children of Incarcerated Parents in Schools

This October, join SEE US, SUPPORT US (SUSU), a month of national awareness raising and activities to increase support for children of incarcerated parents. This year, SUSU focuses on supporting children’s educational success and wellbeing from early childhood through college. Throughout the month of October, we will share resources, tips, and stories on how to increase visibility and support for children of incarcerated parents, of all ages, in schools.
