In Oklahoma, The Tulsa World reports that The Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma has received another large grant to provide services to children whose parents are incarcerated, bringing to $1 million the amount awarded the group within the last month for that purpose. On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that it has awarded a three-year, $600,000 grant to the group's Beyond Bars program.

It is double the size of a previously reported two-year $300,000 U.S. Justice Department grant awarded the program in September, which was specifically aimed at reconnecting incarcerated women with their children.

Girl Scouts Beyond Bars program is an inmate mother-child visitation program. The program covers subjects such as healthy living, budgeting, making good choices, accountability, and communicating effectively.
