Dr. Mona Davies, director of Community Outreach Ministry in Wildomar, California, along with her husband, Bob, will attend the four-day National Children of Incarcerated Parents Conference to be held in Phoenix April 14–17.

At the conference Davies will share her approach to helping families of incarcerated parents—the results of her research and ten years of ministry experience called “Breaking the Cycle of Incarceration.”  

In addition to writing a book on the subject, Davies has conducted a number of workshops and seminars in Riverside County (California) communities, schools, and churches. Now, she brings her findings to a national audience at this conference, hosted by Arizona State University’s Center for Child Well-Being.

Dr. Mona and Bob Davies are co-founders of Community Outreach Ministry, established in 2000. The ministry serves advocates for at-risk and needy children, especially those of incarcerated parents. They use outreaches, camping experiences, mentor protégé and workshops, among other activities to provide social, spiritual, educational, and vocational opportunities to children who have been affected by parental incarceration.
