More Information About Children of Prisoners
In 2001, CWLA began oversight of the Federal Resource Center for Children of Prisoners (FRC) through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Corrections. FRC collected and disseminated information, developed resources, provided training and technical assistance, and greatly increased public awareness about the needs and concerns of the children and families of the incarcerated.
Last year, FRC found a new home with the Family and Corrections Network (FCN), a CWLA member agency based in Virginia and founded in 1983 to provide resources for people helping children and families of prisoners. FRC's training services and other resources are now available through FCN. Contact FCN at 434/589-3036, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
