CLICC caregivers are key to the program's success. Once the incarcerated parent applies, the caregiver must give permission for the child to participate. Caregivers assist in creating the mentoring schedules, assuring their child’s attendance and transportation on a weekly basis, and on occasion will attend or even participate in the mentoring sessions.

Each caregiver has a different set off barriers due to the circumstances of parental incarceration and the family. CLICC staff members do their best to point out resources and offer support.
