Extended Family for Kids Helps Children of the Incarcerated
Extended Family for Kids, a FREE program for children with loved ones incarcerated, is offered in every school in Cherokee County. Groups are forming now to begin September 24th. Parents and guardians should contact the school counselor to enroll students in the program.
“In Extended Family for Kids, children experience 9 lessons teaching them how to reduce stress, deal with anger, and make good choices today and in the future,” explained Laure Clemons, author of Extended Family for Kids. “We focus on the child, not the incarcerated person! That focus is what has made Extended Family for Kids so successful.”
Students in grades K through 12 can enroll in Extended Family for Kids. Students are put into age-appropriate small groups, which meet for 45 minutes each week. Extended Family for Kids is led by Trained EFK Program Leaders Ann Beddingfield and Danielle Chandler.
