The East Baton Rouge Parish Prison held its 11th annual “One Day with Kids” event Tuesday.

This event is for male defendants who have successfully completed Parenting classes, which are designed to understand and accept the responsibility of Parenthood. By completing this program, the inmates are given an opportunity to share a day with their children.

The goal of the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison is to unite family members with defendants, and develop more positive relationships with their children to strengthen family bonds.

The EBRPP blends accountability with its programs to ensure that families succeed together in healthy and positive ways. Four defendants and 14 children, along with 8 caregivers were scheduled to participate in this event.
