Why We Do, What We Do

Having an incarcerated parent has astronomical negative effects on a child's behavior, emotional, academic and social development. We provide inclusion while an inmate is serving his time, helping to keep parents stay connected to their children and ultimately significantly decreasing some of these irreversible, emotional effects.

Bridging The Gap became established in 2018 in Lithonia GA. We are a network of dedicated board members, professionals, and volunteers who believe in and support our mission.

"There's nothing as exciting as a comeback - seeing someone with dreams, watching them fail, and then making the best of their second chance."
