Recording: Strengthening Family Connections at Rikers Island, Mar 8, 2023
Robin Hood Fund for Early Learning, NYC’s Department of Correction, and the Children’s Museum of Manhattan discuss their effort to reunite children (0-5) with parents incarcerated at Rikers Island. The program, launched in 2018, established a national model for how a thoughtfully designed public-private partnership can heal family bonds ruptured when a parent is incarcerated.
