About Prison Family Aid
The United States has the highest prison population rate in the world. On any given day, there are 458 men and women in jail or prison for every 100,000 people in the country.
When a family member is arrested or incarcerated, the spouses, partners, and parents of incarcerated men and women face monumental challenges to maintaining family relationships. It causes extreme strain on the family's well-being. It's a blow to a family's financial standing. Not only is there a loss of income from the incarcerated individual, but there are additional costs such as prison phone calls, visitation, child care and legal fees.
These difficulties often continue as a loved one reenters into society after incarceration.
There are very few local or national resources to provide assistance to these struggling spouses, partners, friends and families.
Prison Family Aid wants to help. We are a social support community for the loved ones of prison inmates. We strive to provide a safe, encouraging space, as well as information and resources to help families of the incarcerated.
