Counseling helps families with the isolation, stigma, and other challenges that may occur when a loved one is arrested and/or imprisoned.  We especially help children address the psychological, social and educational challenges they face.  This service also assists families adjust and prepare for the release and return of a loved one.

Most Families in Crisis workers have a master’s degree and are especially trained in criminal justice matters, including family violence and many are bilingual/bicultural in Spanish/English.


Trained professional counselors provide individual, family, group counseling and case management services to offenders and members of their families. Services are provided at correctional facilities, community programs, Families in Crisis offices and within client homes.  We provide counseling across the continuum, from pre-trial to post-release.
