BAMBI Program Supports Moms and Babies in Prison

The Baby and Mother Bonding Initiative program (BAMBI) delivers tough love as it helps incarcerated mothers bond with their babies born in prison.

“I stayed sober for a year, and then my husband’s like, ‘Just do it one time, one time.’ And everybody knows it’s not just one time,” said Tiffany, 22, “I prayed to get pregnant or be put in prison, just so I could stop.”

Tiffany now lives in a secure residential facility with her baby, Journey, along with 15 to 20 other women and their babies. “We strive to be the best women we can be,” they chant. “Our new life begins with BAMBI.”
