Sister Tesa Fitzgerald founded Hour Children to offer incarcerated women and their children a chance for a fresh start. Over the past 25 years, Fitzgerald's group has provided life-changing assistance to more than 9,000 mothers both behind and beyond bars. Its goal is to reintegrate former inmates into society by helping them with common post-release stumbling blocks, such as reuniting families and finding safe, affordable housing. It also provides the women with free counseling, education and employment support. Kellie Phelan is the Assistant Program Coordinator at Hour Children Inc. After the Hour Children Organization helped her change her life around, Kellie now runs a mentoring program at the organization.

When: Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 11:10am

Where: Room 4202, St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, NY

The lecture series is sponsored by SFC's Women's Center and Institute for Peace for Peace Justice.
