Formerly Incarcerated Parents
Habitot partners with Centerforce- an organization serving communities of incarcerated people and their loved ones- to plan and deliver exclusive visit times for mothers recently released from the Santa Rita Women's Facility. At Habitot, these mothers bond and reconnect with their preschool-aged children through art and play. The 2012 pilot program was generously seeded by a grant from the Trio Foundation.
Playing at Habitot Provides Opportunities for Meaningful Reconnection
Centerforce staff notice that at Habitot, parents and children "smile more" and that parents are more and more engaged with their children each time they visit. Said one case manager, "Habitot is a great asset!" One mother shared, "I learned my daughter has a greater imagination than I knew!"
