Peer support group for family members who are experiencing separation from a loved one because of incarceration

When a loved one is incarcerated, many people feel isolated and powerless, which can add a lot of stress to daily living.

“Caring for Families” is a peer support and resource network for family members who are experiencing separation from a loved one as a result of incarceration.

Here, family members can share their experiences and receive help with navigating the correctional system, obtaining accurate information and accessing support. The group is facilitated by the Mennonite Central Committee Alberta (MCC) and Calgary John Howard Society (CJHS).

 

How to access:

Call CJHS at 403-266-4566 or MCC at 403-275-6935.
