I have spoken to many family members over the years, and one of the main concerns I always hear is, what do I do next after they go to jail? After the sentence has been passed down and you take that long road home realizing that your life has forever changed, what’s next? What is my life going to be like? Where do I go from here? First, I would like to say that each situation is different and I must be honest, you will go through a lot of emotional ups and downs within the first year of your journey. You will experience feelings of hurt, anger, discouragement, doubt and fear. But I want you to know that you are not alone! There is a whole tribe of people out there just like you that are here to help you through these tough times. We are a community of survivors who have endured incarceration and are here to help you through the process.
