Any Rhode Island resident entering the 6th or 9th grade who has been accepted to a private, independent, Catholic or parochial high school, or middle school, and has a parent who is or has been incarcerated is eligible to apply.
In the United States one in twenty-eight children has a parent in prison, yet this group remains hidden, with few services available to address their specific needs. While it is tempting to classify children of incarcerated parents in the same category as others receiving social services, they are different. They are more vulnerable.
