As the new year begins, Living Stones is looking to make a few changes in our programs and services as well as a face lift with a new logo. Staff has grown by one, and stay tuned for an upcoming address change. Our goal is to expand the Children of Inmates (COI) program and After School program. We worked with 17 students last semester in the Children of Importance After School program, where 55% of the students had passing grades, 27% had grades of "C" or better, and 18% were "A/B" students.
We currently have 136 children in the COI program, and are looking to increase the number of camps we serve to 6 (for both children and their incarcerated parents in special bonding visits). Our program will effect more children and caregivers. This means we will be calling on you for your support as a sponsor. Sponsorship is $82.50 per child, per visit. Needless to say...as a child looks forward to seeing their parent, so we look forward to seeing you join us as a partner!
Keep posted on our blog for our upcoming events and dates! To start, our 2nd Annual Family Fun Day is coming up Saturday June 20th, 2015 at Walker Ford Community Center within the Bond community.
