The Vivian Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization that was established in 2015 to help the children of incarcerated parents. Our mission is to raise money and provide grants to ministries and other nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to serving the needs of these kids.
There are 2.7 million children in the United States who have a mother or father behind bars, and approximately 10 million children have experienced parental incarceration at some point in their lives. Not only that, but close to 60 percent of inmates have no personal visits from their children, given that most prisons are not accessible by any form of public transportation and prisoners are routinely held hundreds of miles away from home.
The Word of God tells us to “remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself ” (Hebrews 13:3). But we must also remember these children who are the innocent victims of crime. The Vivian Foundation is particularly interested in partnering with organizations that are devoted to reuniting families that are impacted by the prison experience so that kids of all ages are able to visit their parents while they are incarcerated. Would you please prayerfully consider sharing God's love and supporting our mission to help these children?
The Vivian Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for these individuals and doing whatever it takes to reunite families, transform hearts, and change lives.
