Our Children's Place (OCP) is a residential initiative allowing young children (babies and preschoolers) to live with their mothers while the women serve out their sentences for non-violent offenses. OCP is designed to break the intergenerational cycle of crime, poverty, substance abuse, and family violence. It will empower the child with the mother's help to enhance cognitive, social, physical, and emotional development. OCP plans to open its doors in 2009.
