Links to resources for parents/children/spouses of those who are incarcerated

As a child, if your loved one is incarcerated, the many changes may feel overwhelming. This is a link to Sesame Street’s “Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration” which is designed for a parent or guardian of a child with an incarcerated parent to deal and cope with these challenges. How to use every day routines to help your child. Encourage your children (ages 3-8) to express their feelings. Talk with your children about incarceration, and connect with your child’s incarcerated parent. Excellent free resource!


Prison Fellowship: Information on the different prison ministry opportunities offered by Prison Fellowship, and how you can go through the training to become a volunteer. The training program they offer is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about doing jail/prison ministry even if you don’t become a Prison Fellowship volunteer. Gives you the training and information you need if you know absolutely nothing about what to expect when doing prison ministry.
