Did you know that fifty-percent of women across the nation are incarcerated single mothers? 

Statistics 

According to a report by Justice Strategies, “Children on the Outside” research has shown a connection between parental incarceration and adverse outcomes for children that include:

·         Increased likelihood of engaging in antisocial or delinquent behavior

·         An increased likelihood of school failure

·         An increased likelihood of unemployment, and;

·         An increased likelihood of developing mental health problem

Locally, over 1500 inmates are housed in East Baton Rouge Parish prison. Twelve-percent of that population are females. Non-violent, un-convicted citizens in Baton Rouge are being held in jail because they do not have the ability to pay several hundred dollars on the spur of the moment. Our goal is not to subvert justice, but to allow them to continue their lives until they have been arraigned and judged as guilty or not guilty.

Frequently those arrested without the ability to pay bail will lose their jobs, their housing and their children, all before they have been convicted of any wrong-doing. 

For Mother's Day this year, the YWCA Community Bail Fund in partnership with our community partners would like to make a difference in the lives of incarcerated mothers by paying bonds for non-violent misdemeanor offenses to bring them HOME for mother's day. 

Our goal is to bail out at least twenty women by Mother's Day 05/12/2019 this year!
