The Center for Children of Incarcerated Parents (CCIP) was founded with the mission of preventing intergenerational crime and incarceration through the development of model services for children of criminal offenders and their families, as well as producing and disseminating information on this population. Since 1989, CCIP has served more than 25,000 families and currently provides services in these four areas:
