Making a Difference
Oklahoma has the highest rate of incarcerated women in the country – and the second highest for men. 85.3% of the women in prison in the state of Oklahoma has at least one child. This means tens of thousands of children go months or years without one or both of their parents, which creates anxiety, depression, anger and loss of interest in school for these children.
