Kids With Incarcerated Parents Need Us

Many children with incarcerated parents become depressed and struggle in school. They often have behavior issues with caregivers and teachers. Some of these children develop post- traumatic stress disorder and other anxiety disorders. Children also bear a load of shame because they are teased and bullied when others find out their parent is incarcerated.

At Little Light Christian School We help Kids of Incarcerated Parents by:

  • Giving them hope
  • Providing a safe place, food, transportation, school supplies and clothes
  • Giving them access to a private Christian school education at no cost to their families
  • Connecting KIP’s to mentors and resources in the faith based community

Our History

In 2009 Little Light Ministries incorporated to help meet the growing needs of incarcerated women in Oklahoma. We began mentoring women in prison and raising awareness of women’s incarceration issues. As Little Light realized the alarming statistics of children with incarcerated parents, our major focus became helping children with incarcerated parents. This gave birth to Little Light Christian School which opened its doors in September of 2012.

Little Light Christian School is a tuition free private Christian school for children who have a parent who is now in jail or prison, or has a history of this. We are supported by donations from the private and business community and grants from foundations. Donate Here
