This 1974 Classic motivated and united America in a way that was unprecedented. Peace of Hope chooses this as an anthem for 2018.
"Desire for connection with family does not end when incarceration begins, it increases".
Human interaction with loved ones from the outside during incarceration has been proven to decrease stress, tension, aggression and other maladies for both the person in prison and the forlorn family left behind.
Visitation is especially helpful for young children who may require assistance with understanding the meaning of imprisonment.
To relieve the devastating stresses associated with having loved ones imprisoned by utilizing our service, education and advocacy work.
Transportation is a HUGE barrier that creates stress when a loved one is imprisoned. Most prisons are no less than 100 miles away with no public transportation available.
