SUPPORTING FAMILIES with INCARCERATED LOVED ONES

Also, they may have no loved one able or willing to support them until they can find quality employment and housing of their own.
While incarcerated these individuals work, they go to school and seek other services that is believed to rehabilitate them, but the truth is, society is not welcoming, housing and employment is denied these individuals and in many cases, leading them back to a negative survival mode.
