NCIC.Gov – Children of Incarcerated Parents

In Kentucky as well as any other state or country, families are impacted by the reality of incarceration of a loved one. Many times the families have no one to turn to. Families of the Incarcerated is a network of family support groups that meet and talk with loved ones of those incarcerated or recently released.

Think of them as a neighbor who has gone through incarceration or had a loved one who did and they are there to talk. To lend an ear and give some possible insight to what you may be dealing with in your life.
