A Mother’s Love Makes
all the Difference

The importance of a mother's support during an incarcerated person's rehabilitation process cannot be overstated, particularly for the incarcerated person themselves. Incarceration can be a challenging and isolating experience, and mothers can provide invaluable support to their children during this difficult time. A mother's involvement in the rehabilitation process can help provide the incarcerated person with a sense of hope, motivation, and purpose, all of which can facilitate successful rehabilitation.

Moms Need Your Support

Without proper support systems, mothers across the country are impacted by the far-reaching cost of mass incarceration. This is why we want to take this time to celebrate our brave mothers who are involved in helping NIA’s effort and those mothers who bear the terrible cost borne by a broken system. The NIA strives to provide support systems for mothers in need, and gives them a voice.

We Can't Do
it Without Them

The NIA started as the brainchild of our CEO Kate Boccia, a mother who’s suffered terrible tragedy. Kate States:

“A profound and deep grief came over me that was hard to shake. I felt so alone. I was stumbling blindly through a maze of confusion. As so many mothers do, I turned to alcohol to numb the pain. I couldn’t get out of bed some days, got fired from my job, and strained my marriage thin. My son’s sentence literally turned my family’s world upside down. Where were the people who could help me help my son? How do I navigate this beast alone? I sunk deeper and deeper into depression. I was giving up.

Then I met Tori, Michelle, Rotunda, Wesley, Dena, Edward, Mazzetti, Darion, Ana, Nolan, Jimmy, James, Kevin, Deanna, Sierra, Tricia, Dena, Brandon, Diane, Maurice, Linda, and hundreds of others just like me and my son. Families torn apart by “the system.”

These families inspired me to act. I was no longer afraid. I turned my anger into advocacy, my alcohol into action, and I became a voice for the voiceless.”
