On any given day there are over 20,000 kiwi kids with a parent in prison, a situation they didn't choose. The social deprivation and isolation children of prisoners can face leaves them vulnerable and all too often this leads to cycles of crime. Without proper support, children of prisoners are over 9 x more likely to end up in prison than other kiwi kids.

Pillars are the experts in the crisis that is imprisonment of a parent and our research-based programme empowers and supports these children and their families to break the cycle.

Your donation helps us fund our mentoring programme so we can recruit, train, match and support volunteer mentors to be a positive and and stable model at a time when these children most need consistency and support.

We can also provide a range of support services to parents and caregivers of these children around their wellbeing and care while their parent is in prison.

By supporting Pillars you are making a difference in the life of these children and helping to make generational change.
