Advocate

Did you know?

  • Connecticut spends nearly $1.5 million per day on its prison system.
  • One in forty children in America have a parent that is incarcerated.
  • Research shows that family support plays an important part in successful reentry.

In addition to programs and services, Families in Crisis monitors and advances legislation that helps offenders and their loved ones stay connected to one another. 

You can help advocate in several ways:

  • learn about new legislation and regulations related to the work of Families in Crisis and work for change
  • contact your legislators and the media to educate and ask for needed changes for offenders families
  • provide administrative support to mobilize for change
  • serve on the Families in Crisis advocacy sub-committee of the Board of Directors

If you are interested in supporting Families in Crisis through advocacy, please contact Stacie Nicholas, Development Director.
