Why We Do What We Do
Did you know that on any given day in Oklahoma, there are tens of thousands of children who have an incarcerated parent? There are thousands more that have parents that have been to jail or prison at some time. Incarceration interrupts family relationships and financial stability, and sometimes these never return to normal.
Children with incarcerated parents or even parents with a history of incarceration struggle with
- failure in school
- depression and shame
- problems with caregivers
- post traumatic stress disorder
- bullying and teasing by peers
- behavior problems
Breaking the Cycle of Incarceration
At Little Light our mission is to break the cycle of generational incarceration in Oklahoma. We are doing this by empowering, educating and encouraging children with incarcerated parents in Oklahoma and their families. We know that Kids of Incarcerated Parents (KIP’s) are up to seven times as likely to be incarcerated themselves (According to the Oklahoma Commission on Children and Youth). Little Light is the only full day elementary school serving the needs of children with incarcerated parents.
How We Help
At Little Light Children receive lots of individual attention, intensive remediation, behavior modification, and love. At Little Light the homelike atmosphere is filled with the love of God. Children learn reading, writing, math, science, Bible, social studies, music, and art.
Music, Art, Gardening, Prayer and Pet therapies help our students de-stress and enjoy learning.
