An Angel Tree family event was provided by Prison Fellowship and Moms In Prayer International for BAMBI participants. Pictures were taken with Santa Claus and memories of their child’s first Christmas were made.
Volunteer organizations such as Prison Fellowship and Moms In Prayer International provide faith-based programming that focuses on strengthening the family. The Baby and Mother Boning Initiative (BAMBI) program is unique
as it allows pregnant females who are entering incarceration to keep their child. Female offenders who will be incarcerated at their child’s birth may be eligible for this program.
This program gives mother and child the opportunity to form a healthy relationship, in a secure setting. The offender receives child development education, life skills, infant first aid and CPR, nutrition, peer recovery, cognitive skills, anger management and family reunification sessions.
Additional programming may include substance abuse education and GED classes.
