S.C. Department of Corrections

There are almost 1,400 women incarcerated in South Carolina prisons, and 80 percent of those women are mothers—mothers who are missing integral parts of their children’s developmental years.

Through a program developed at The Riley Institute at Furman University's Diversity Leadership Initiative, along with S.C.'s Department of Correction, A Mother's Voice, has become a reality and is now helping to connect those mothers to their children.

For more on the program, visit The Riley Institute.
