Project WHAT!, a program of Community Works,  raises awareness about the impacts of parental incarceration on children, with the long-term goal of improving services and policies that affect these children. Community Works engages youth and adults in arts and education programs that interrupt and heal the far-reaching impact of incarceration and violence by empowering individuals, families and communities.

Project WHAT! was launched with a generous grant from the Zellerbach Family Foundation. We thank the Youth Empowerment Fund and Zellerbach Family Foundation for making the summit possible. Other funders include: Sills Family Foundation and the Youth Funding Youth Ideas.
