About Us

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

Who We Are

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.

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.
