What You Can Do Now to Help Jail Brakers
To give ya a bit more information about the people that use our Jail Brakers services:
Youth are the most vulnerable and often experience a sense of poor family identity due to their family's association with jail or prison.
They face significant barriers to reconnecting with their families, communities, and schools.
They may be at risk of involvement in the juvenile system, creating an inter-generational cycle of crime.
Share our information with your friends and family: make a contribution of time, skills or financial support to us. Encourage those in need of support to connect with us. Please contact Cheryl Niemo at (224) 422-7431 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also you can go to our facebook page
