Families Doing Time

“I found a place where I could talk freely about what I was feeling and not feel judged since my husband went to prison.”

“Bernard jumped on me, yelled at me and has thrown things at me since his mom has gone to jail. He needed skills to help him cope with his feelings. Since EKWIP, Bernard’s behavior and anger has improved greatly.
-teacher at Winterfield Elementary

Program Purpose

Families Doing Time serves families who are dealing with the effects of having a loved one incarcerated. The various programs aim to provide emotional support and practical information about the criminal justice system and about available community resources. All programs are based on the belief that, by increasing social supports, children and their caregivers can build stronger families through access to resources, reduced isolation, reduced stress to increase family stability and healthy development. Services are available at no cost to any person or family with a family member who is or has been incarcerated.
