Support Group Meetings
We have regular support group meetings right here in Las Vegas! This forum provides a caring and non-judgmental environment. Attendees have or had a loved one in prison and share information and stories. We respect everyone's choice of what they want to or do not want to share and everyone's privacy. What happens in our group, stays in our group.
You can also find our meetings on Meetup.
The Nevada resources page contains a comprehensive list of prisons, support groups, and other helpful information to help you navigate through the Nevada prison system.
It is important for you to understand the processes and rules prior to visiting your loved one in prison. Each Federal, State and County facility is a little different. Other Resources provides links to federal, state and local facilities, including location, contact information, and visitation information. Just locate the state of the facility and click on the appropriate link.
Prison: The Hidden Sentence
Those on the outside are doing time too.
The purpose of this blog is to provide information and empower those who have loved ones in prison. Raising awareness one story at a time. Tell your story here and/or listen to others. You are not alone.
In Memory of Donna Metcalf, FFIP Founder
For over 16 years Donna gave help and guidance to hundreds of people and provided much needed support to this community. We miss her deeply and are continuing her work to raise awareness and close the empathy gap for those who had or have loved ones in the prison system. She never wanted anyone to feel alone when a loved one is taken into the prison system and that's why she started this group. We continue her mission and need your help.
Volunteers are needed at group meetings, children/adult/family programs, events, fundraising, social media, website administration, and local outreach. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help continue Donna's mission.
