AmeriCorps Prisoner and Family Ministries - LSSI

Program Description:

LSSI's Prisoner and Family Ministry programs exist to support families, strengthen relationships, and involve the community in restoring all people affected by crime. AmeriCorps members will assist in facilitating children visits to incarcerated parents in order to maintain the connection of parents to their children by providing transportation. Members will assist incarcerated parents in recording books on tapes and sending them to the children. Support services will be provided to the caregivers of children whose parents are incarcerated. In addition, members will provide resources to formerly incarcerated men and women to reestablish themselves in local communities of Chicago, Des Plaines, Marion, Springfield, and Rockford.
