Cultivating Activities and Relationships through Extracurricular Scholarships.
Coffee Bean CARES was created to assist the children of currently incarcerated parents. It is no question that these children are the true victims when it comes to the mistakes of men and women who have committed a crime. This program will provide children with scholarship opportunities for extracurricular activities such as dance, debate, sports, music lessons, ie, any extracurricular scholarship of their choice.
The currently incarcerated parent is provided with the opportunity to nominate their child and write an essay for a scholarship to help strengthen the parent/child relationship by giving both a sense of unity, despite their current situation of separation.
