March Monthly Media

Parents Behind Bars

Indiana has one of the nation’s highest rates of incarcerated parents, and the negative effects on their children are significant. Research summarized at the University of Minnesota revealed, “Through no fault of their own, kids with incarcerated parents are at a terrible disadvantage.”  These children are more prone to physical health problems, depression, poor school performance and delinquency. These sons and daughters are more likely to live in poverty and are at higher risk of being uninsured and homeless. Learn more about the impact of incarcerated parents on youth and how you can help in this interview with President & CEO Bill Stanczykiewicz and WFYI and in IYI’s monthly column for March.
