Project Avary
385 Bel Marin Keys Boulevard
Suite G
Novato, CA 94949


Project Avary is a great organization that helps to improve the lives of children who have parents in prison. Kids with incarcerated parents are considered “at-risk” youths because they are missing pivotal guidance and training to help develop their emotional and social skills. Project Avary was one of the first non-profits that focuses specifically on kids with incarcerated parents and since its debut, the organization has helped over 400 kids in the area.
