Goals of the Excellence and Advancement Foundation

The goals of The Excellence and Advancement Foundation are: to focus public attention on the criminalization process that impacts our children, to help challenge the various agencies, individuals, and organizations that work with both, these children, and adults, to come together to break the cycle of incarceration through enhanced prevention, intervention, and accountability efforts.

Prevention Programs

Prevention programs are designed to keep children engaged in school and engaged in their community.

Focus Public Attention

We want the public to know that millions of children are being pushed out of schools and into the prison system. 

Challenge Various Entities

There are a variety of systems (Educational, Justice and Child Welfare) contributing to incarceration. We challenge systems to reevaluate how they handle children.

Break The Cycle

Approximately 2 million children are impacted by the criminal justice system. There are approximately 12 million persons in Texas in prison, jailed, on probation or parole.

Answers The Why

With over 30 years of research we know why we have a robust prison system. We also understand what can be done to help Americans that have been trapped in the criminal justice system.

Our Challenge

Our challenge is to use this opportunity to take a closer look at how we can work together to make a positive impact in the lives of children and adults adversely affected by the criminal justice system.

Our goal is to answer the questions “why” and “what can be done!
