Resilience Beyond Incarceration (RBI)

On any given day, an estimated 2,000 Vermont children experience parental incarceration; that’s 6,000 children a year — the same as the number of Vermont babies born annually. One out of every 17 children in Vermont has had a mom or dad in prison.

The trauma of parental incarceration can affect a child’s life forever. RBI works to reduce adverse effect by supporting children and their caregivers through the challenges that come with involvement in the criminal justice system. RBI focuses on developing resources and convening community teams around the state to identify and implement local/regional strategies to improve outcomes for children impacted by parental incarceration.
