Prison Ministry Parent Training
As many as two million children in the U.S. have one or more parents in prison or jail. Studies show as many as 70 percent of these child will fall into the same pattern and end up in prison at some point in their own lives.
Researchers have estimated at least 4,500 children under 18 in Oklahoma have a mother in prison. The state doesn’t keep track of the numbers of children whose parents are incarcerated, but tough sentencing laws have contributed to an Oklahoma incarceration rate that is No. 4 in the nation and No. 1 for women.

Hope Harbor Children’s Home
Located outside of Claremore, Oklahoma, the Children’s Home provides new hope for at-risk teens and their families. With both boys’ and girls’ cottages, the Home provides a family-style environment for young people whose individual or family lives have reached a point where serious help is needed. Residents of the Children’s Home work through a Character Growth model individualized to their own needs and situations, while receiving counseling from Hope Harbor’s on-site therapist and attending Hope Harbor Academy. Family counseling, parent training, and family support are provided as residents work toward being able to return to a strengthened and stable home environment. While Hope Harbor does charge a fee to help off-set the costs of its residential program, no one is ever denied care based on financial resources and ability to pay.
Hope Harbor Academy
Young people who come to Hope Harbor are often years behind academically. Certified teachers at Hope Harbor’s on-site Academy work with each student to improve their study and academic skills. When students first enter the program, they are assessed to determine reading and math skills as well as mastery of grade level core content. In providing individualized instruction, teachers allow students to progress at their own pace while re-teaching core content they have missed.
