Did you know that the children of prisoners are among the most vulnerable and marginalized groups in the world?

Millions of children worldwide have lost a parent to incarceration. Through no fault of their own, these precious children are at a higher risk of abuse, neglect, trafficking, poverty, dropping out of school, child marriage and going to prison themselves.

These precious children are often ostracized from their communities and forced into the shadows. They are overlooked by many other child-focused programs because of their stigma, transiency and high need.

Children of prisoners are “the least of these”. LEARN MORE


Prison Fellowship International provides direct services to children of prisoners, a population that often falls through the cracks of other child-focused organizations. Through more than 40 years of reputable and enduring in-prison programming around the world, we engage with incarcerated men and women on a regular basis. This enables us to locate and provide services to children of prisoners in a way no other organization can.

The Child’s Journey® is a comprehensive, community- and family- based care program designed to address the needs of this vulnerable population. Since program launch in 2013, we have served more than 11,000 children of prisoners, ensuring they receive four essential supports: education, safety, health, and spiritual engagement. The program is focused in six countries: Cambodia, Colombia, Malawi, Rwanda, Togo, and Zambia.



The sponsored children aren’t the only ones who benefit. We’ve seen congregation members change as the see God’s love at work in the lives of their sponsored children. Hear Larry’s Story!
