Our objective is to enable Hour Children's vision is to break the cycle of intergenerational incarceration, through compassionate and comprehensive services and encourages all to live and interact with dignity and respect.

With your contributions, Extra Butter seeks to renovate Hour Children's kids center and provide resources towards its other important programs to empower and inspire underserved kids of Queens, NY.

In 1986, Sister Teresa “Tesa" Fitzgerald developed a home for children whose mothers were in prison. Recognizing the struggles of these women to get back on their feet, Sister Tesa helps incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and their children successfully rejoin the community, reunify with their families, and build healthy, independent, and secure lives. In 1992, Hour Children was officially started to carry on that mission.

The name was inspired by the key hours that impact the life of a child with an imprisoned mother: the hour of her arrest, the hour of their prison visit, and the hour she finally arrives home.

Some services Hour Children offers include prisoner advocacy, housing, job skill training, transportation for correctional facility visitation, counseling, financial advisory, day care, after school programming and community food pantry. Learn more at Extra Butter and Hour Children
