About Jail Brakers

Jail Brakers is a charitable organization that provides a safe place for children and families to express their emotional reaction to the separation from a family member who has been incarcerated. We embrace a holistic approach to healing and everyone is welcome and treated with respect, Each group meets for 12 weeks followed by ongoing monthly support. Sessions begin with circle time where members share stories that build confidence and trust. A community dinner is provided to foster friendship and natural supports and is followed with an activity. Activities are experiential, expressive and creative and are designed to build cohesion and connectedness to reduce isolation.
