Family Reunification Program – Feb 18

Posted by Philadelphia FIGHT on February 11, 2020

The Institute for Community Justice is beginning a pilot program for Family Reunification, and we are looking for families who would like to participate.

This program will provide a safe space for families to work through stressors related to incarceration. It will consist of free weekly family mediation sessions that last five weeks for people in re-entry and their chosen family (can be any important person that has been supportive or whom a participant wishes to communicate with better).

We will focus on using family therapy techniques to build two-way empathy and understanding of the challenges faced both by the person in re-entry and by that person’s family as a result of incarceration to help facilitate happier, healthier relationships.

Our pilot program will consist of 6-8 families and is open to any participant above the age of 18 who has been impacted by mass incarceration.

If you’re interested in referring clients to this program, please come to our information and registration session, or forward this to your clients who might like to participate with their families. We are hosting the information and registration session on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 from 11am to 12pm.

Thank you for your interest! Please email Marlon MacAllister at [email protected] to confirm your attendance or if you have any questions.
