Every year, over 20,000 children throughout Aotearoa New Zealand suffer the distress and heartache of losing parents to imprisonment.
These children often live in poor households, with a parent or carer who is often forced to relocate, and who themselves may be struggling to cope.
Many of these children are dealing with shame, embarrassment, stigma, and loneliness. Pillars provide wraparound support services, working both in prisons and in the community. Pillars have social work teams to help stabilise the families, as well as trained volunteer mentors that are matched to each family to work with them for a 12 month period.
