Scouts in Prison
A recent story last month on Girls Scouts in Prison focusing on the program to allow girls a chance to visit with their moms every 2 weeks, showed that scouting can help keep families together even in very difficult circumstances.

There's a similar article about a Cub Scout program in Seattle from The Seattle Times in May, 2005.

It's a tough way to see a parent, but I have to believe that having contact every couple weeks must be a strong incentive for the parent to shape up. And, it would keep the child in touch with mom or dad.

You might want to check in your community to see if your scouts might be able to provide some sort of service for prisoners. Some kindness shown while in prison might have beneficial returns to the community when they finish their time.
