Children of incarcerated parents in Pittsburgh are taking on policy-makers to improve their future. Hollis challenges incarcerated parents to in turn, rise to the challenge and change the legacy they leave their children.
Ms. Hollis is the Executive Director of Amachi Pittsburgh, a unique partnership of secular and faith- based organizations working together to support children and families of the incarcerated. Under her leadership, the organization has become an ever-growing and diverse network of community organizations, dedicated volunteers, families, and partners in education, government and business.
