Children of incarcerated parents may face a number of challenging circumstances. They may have experienced trauma related to their parent’s arrest or experiences leading up to it. Children of incarcerated parents may also be more likely to have faced other adverse childhood experiences, including witnessing violence in their communities or directly in their household or exposure to drug and alcohol use/misuse.
This web portal created by Youth.gov features information and resources on these overlapping problems. The portal provides additional links and resources on this youth topic.
