From a historical context, it's important to note that the number of non-profit organizations tailored to helping exonerees is slim. This is the same case for the lack of states that assist exonerees with finding employment, housing, and education. Exonerees face social hardships. Whether it's in prison, from their family, or after being released, it is ubiquitous. There's often a social stigma that exonerees face. Consequently, their children can not replace the lost time. Children often feel abandoned and are subject to poor academic performance, shame, and isolation. This is why the Destiny Jackson Foundation is committed to children with incarcerated parents.
