‘Not one more generation of disadvantaged children and youth of prisoners’. PARs Inc is a charitable organisation that has been operating for more than 100 years whose sole focus is supporting prisoners and their whanau. Our approach is to work with the whole whānau to provide housing, health, educational, employment and youth services. We can’t do it all on our own.
But here is our biggest challenge. The issues that our whānau face are not new. The previous generation and too often the one before that, have experienced the same circumstances.
Our pledge is to ‘stop the inter-generational pipeline of disadvantage for children and the youth of prisoners’. This is something to which we are absolutely committed.
So, our invitation to you is to join us to meet this challenge. Your donation will make a difference in stemming the tide of intergenerational cycles of disadvantage and improve the wellbeing of this priority group.
