What is Breaking the Cycle?
Children of ex-offenders are more likely to become offenders themselves. Operation New Hope is redirecting the path they’ve been given by providing the emotional and financial stability the need to succeed.
Help break the cycle. Give them hope.
Breaking the Cycle is a full-scale economic development initiative aimed at the reunification of families and improving the outcomes for children of ex-offenders. The goal of this initiative is to make the reunification of family possible and to provide financial and emotional stability for the children.
How does Breaking the Cycle work?
- Creates a supportive process where parents are willing to work to provide both financial and emotional support to their children.
- Provides job skills, parenting and life skills training. Plus, family counseling.
- Assists parents in finding a living wage so they can provide and maintain a stable home life.
- Allows parents and children the important opportunity to rebuild their relationships.
