About Hour Children
Established in 1986, Hour Children began when Sister Tesa Fitzgerald, opened her doors to children of female offenders. Since then, Hour Children has evolved into a leading provider of prison-and community-based services for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and their children. Hour Children was named to acknowledge the important hours that shape the life of a child with an incarcerated mother – the hour of their mother’s arrest, the hour of their visit, and the more hopeful hour of reunification. Hour Children provides services to 4500+ families annually, helping formerly incarcerated women reunify with their children, successfully rejoin the community, and build healthy independent lives.
