Children love their parent. For most part, there is nothing a parent can do to lose the love of their child. Many kids across America are dealing with emotional pain because there are a lack of resources to assist children of incarcerated parents. When a child loses their parent to prison they began to go through the stages of grief. Many don’t have the support to help them process what happened or that it’s not their fault.

On top of their personal pain and the sting of the stigma, many of these households are facing financial difficulties due to the loss of the parent’s income. 

Our goal is to mentor and close the communication gap between children and imprisoned parents. Through healthy relationships and support we can change the path of many children. Research shows that when a child has a relationship with their parent who is in prison the recidivism rate is reduced. 


MANY CHILDREN WITH INCARCERATED PARENTS ARE UNABLE TO SEE THEIR MOM OR DAD BECAUSE OF DISTANCE, TRANSPORTATION AND/OR FINANCIAL LIMITATIONS. BAGGING HEARTS IS CURRENTLY RAISING MONEY in the amount of $2,500 For A VAN TO ASSIST FAMILIES WITH TRANSPORTATION TO VISIT THEIR LOVED ONE. The van will also be used for field trips and transportation to extracurriCular activities. AFTER EACH VISIT with their parent, OUR CHILDREN WILL RECEIVE BEAUTIFUL BAGS FULL OF THEIR FAVORITE GOODIES AND ENCOURAGING WORDS.

Shana Goode, on behalf of

Bagging Hearts

Few resources exist to assist children who parents are incarcerated. Forced parent-child separation leads children to develop poor adaptive strategies, low self-esteem and delinquent behaviors. We are raising money for a van to help close the gap of communication and decrease maladaptive behaviors.
