Weekly Support Groups

The need for a support group is great as it offers the chance to connect with others who have or are going through the pain of having a loved one in the criminal justice system. Through sharing experiences, strength and hope, the healing can begin.

The meeting will be structured as a Peacemaking Circle which is a form of Restorative Justice. In this process each person is treated with dignity, speaks without interruption, (although one may pass if one chooses) shares their story and is considered to be equal with every other person at the meeting.
