Hour Children

Hour Children services

Hour Children helps incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women successfully rejoin the community, reunify with their families, and build healthy, independent, and secure lives. Hour Children’s three thrift shops provide a variety of high-quality designer clothing, vintage and antique furniture, housewares, art, jewelry, and children’s items at reasonable prices. The thrift shops generate revenue to support Hour Children's programs, and provide employment and training for program participants.

donateNYC Partner Fact: Hour Children provided 73 women with employment education and training in 2014 and provided housing to 189 women and children who were affected by incarceration.
