The Family Restoration Project One
Updated: Feb 23, 2021
The Family Restoration Project of Upon this Rock Ministries, Inc. (established 2016) is a wrap-around collaborative initiative of empowerment to help support the successful and safe transition of young fathers and mothers from detention, out-of-home placement, or incarceration to their families and communities. The goal is to reduce recidivism and promote public safety.
We provide the needed opportunities for regular, meaningful visitation, referrals to community resources, and other services that help families cope with incarceration and prepare for release and reunification. We strive to prevent the breakdown of relationships among those incarcerated and their families by providing regular, meaningful visitation, support, referrals, and education services.
Our programs help families and loved ones throughout the period of incarceration and also prepare families for a successful transition when the individual is released from prison back into our community. The Family Restoration Project’s ultimate goal is to create families that are safe, stable, and nurturing. Our overall strategy is to increase the capacity of families to care for their children and thereby be restored.
