Milk and Cookies (MAC) Children’s Program

AFOI specializes in the needs of children with incarcerated parents by offering the Milk and Cookies Children’s Program or, as we affectionately call it, the MAC Program. The MAC Program is active in several City of Richmond elementary schools--currently, they are Woodville Elementary School, Chimbarazo Elementary School, and Swansboro Elementary School. 

Our MAC services include:

  • Children’s support group guided by an established, evaluated and copyrighted core curriculum

  • Information and training for parents, caregivers, school personnel/administration and service providers on the unique needs of these children

  • Assistance to caregivers with resources that can help with financial, housing, transportation, employment and other concerns or family and household stressors

  • Support for healthy family reunification and reintegration when the incarcerated parent is released

If you have questions about these services, please contact:
