Strengthening Family Connections at Rikers Island

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.
