Now You See Me: Unmasking the Hidden Crisis of the Children of Prisoners
After nearly 20 years working with children of prisoners—the invisible, innocent victims of crime—Frank Lofaro has documented this hidden crisis, which has left 1 million children without safety, food, education, medical care, and spiritual and emotional support in his book Now You See Me: Unmasking the Hidden Crisis of the Children of Prisoners.
You’ll meet Chenda, Dany, Kunda, Daniel, Precious, and Noelia—six children of prisoners in developing countries who have been rescued from the horrors of neglect and isolation, and restored to their families, communities, and the hope of a Heavenly Father. Learn how, through a network of caring supporters, volunteers, and staff, Prison Fellowship International provides specialized assistance that addresses the following five common risks among this vulnerable population:
- loss of safety and basic needs
- risk of victimization and depersonalization
- loss of resilience
- loss of relationship with incarcerated parent
- loss of access to education
A New Strategy in Nonprofit Capacity Building: A Breakthrough Model from Prison Fellowship International
After many years of struggling to build capacity in its nearly 120 national affiliates, Prison Fellowship International discovered classroom theory without real-life, in-the-field experience just does not work. A gap often exists between discussed ideas and the real situations leaders experience. Prison Fellowship International’s new strategy in nonprofit capacity building is about creating the dynamics in which nonprofits are effectively motivated, equipped, and supported to grow their own capacity. Through Prison Fellowship International’s own case studies of its three flagship programs, which have impacted the lives of hundred’s of thousands of prisoners, prisoners’ families, and victims of crime, A New Strategy in Nonprofit Capacity Building demonstrates how to create the dynamics in which nonprofits really can be helped and launched to grow their own capacity. A new breakthrough strategy has been developed—and it works!
