When an individual commits a crime and is sentenced to time in prison, the sentence has a profound impact on the individual's family. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to ask for funds to develop a program for families of incarcerated men and women who access services from "Friends Outside," and lack community support during the period of time that the prisoner is incarcerated. The current research regarding the issue of support for families affected by incarceration is sparse. Traditionally programs have placed focus on the inmate rather than the families. The goal of the proposed program is to serve families with an incarcerated family member, according to risk factors, level of current support and need. The program will offer therapy groups, education, referrals to community resources and individual counseling on an as needed basis. The Public Welfare Foundation was selected as a potential funder for the proposed program. Submission and/or funding of this grant is not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
