The Family Reunification Program (FRP) at Lad Lake’s St. Rose Campus helps children of incarcerated parents cope with feelings of sadness, anger, shame, alienation, confusion, and overall dysfunction. The FRP helps them cope with the separation and abandonment they experience, while promoting the development of coping skills, protective behaviors, and family stability. Additionally, the FRP provides assistance with the reintegration of former inmates into the community, enhancing the possibility of successful family reunification and decreasing the possibility of future incarcerations – of both parent and child.
