Family Advocacy


Do you have a loved one who is incarcerated?

Incarceration brings its own set of struggles to a family. You may be thinking: What happens next? How do we stay connected? Where do I find support?

We’re here for you!

Through Christian Heritage's Family Advocate Services you will find a Family Advocate who will come alongside you to explore your strengths and walk with you through your problem solving process. There will be regularly-scheduled community events and classes to connect you with others who are experiencing the same things you are. We also provide assistance in building your support system and seeking out resources.
