Our goal is to help reduce the trauma of incarceration for inmates and their families, to provide information that can lead to positive change, and to assist post-release clients with their re-entry into the community.
Pre-Release and Jail Visiting
All local jail facilities are visited by volunteers who provide one-on-one case management and pre-release planning. Additionally our volunteers provide re-entry prep classes and post-release planning services.
Post Release Services
After release from jail or prison, case managers can help facilitate post-release plans and provide applicable services, along with support and advocacy.
Friends Outside supports the family through the initial trauma of incarceration and helps to begin the process of rebuilding the family unit.
