Overview

Rhode Islanders Sponsoring Education seeks to undo the generational cycle of poverty, addiction and crime by investing in children of incarcerated parents. Children of incarcerated parents are six times more likely to enter the criminal justice system, struggle for mental and physical health, be exposed to violence and addiction, live in poverty, and drop out of high school. We commit to empower these most vulnerable members of our community and undo the legacy that too often entraps them. We believe education is the protective factor that opens doors for a self-determined life.
