NEW HOUR INTERVIEW: ADELINE
New Hour for Women and Children - LI teamed up with students from Hofstra University to produce to a series of video interviews featuring our members.
Not only do we help women and mothers behind bars through our jail programming, we help their families and children at home. Incarceration impacts not only the individual but the entire family. In the majority of cases, women tend to be the primary caretakers of children in cases of divorce or separation, and New Hour realizes that assisting and empowering a mother behind bars also means assisting and empowering her children and family.
New Hour member Adeline says, “New Hour is my place where I can go and talk and be myself and interact with other women who have gone through what I’m going through.

Special thanks to the Long Island Community Foundation and Capitol One for their support.
New Hour was founded on Long Island to provide meaningful support to current and formerly incarcerated women, their children and families. We build community to promote successful reentry and lasting reintegration, and to reform unjust criminal justice system policies. We empower directly impacted people to use their experiences to effect change in the carceral system.
