Keeping Families Connected is committed to rebuilding families and fostering life skills in youth and young adults from broken homes. KFC is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that seeks to enrich the lives of young people through events that benefit the communities they serve, providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.
KFC has taken over 150 families to visit their loved ones in prison. They pickup clients at their home, provide breakfast and lunch, and take them to their loved one's unit before returning home.
Sponsor a prison trip for $300. This covers gas and meals for families. You can also volunteer to be a driver. There are volunteer opportunities through prison trips, special events, sponsorship opportunities, and mentors for youth and young adults. Donations are always welcome.
In 2020, Keeping Families Connected launched a reoccurring 12-week curriculum for boys of color, ages 12-18, called Boyz 'N Blue. The mission of this program is to bridge the gap from the schools to prison pipelines. Each week, guest speakers from the police department, court system, prison system, probation officers, religious organizations, etc. speak to the boys to share their wisdom and council.
Back to School Connect gives back to the community each August and equips youth with school supplies for the upcoming school year. Christmas Connect is KFC's annual toy, clothing, and coat giveaway to families in need.
