Do You Have A Loved One In Jail/Prison???

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

I am hoping to find others on SP who are dealing with having a loved one/friend/family member who is currently incarcerated. I know I am not the only one going through this rough time. One of the advantages of the Internet is that you only need to reveal as much as you want know about yourself. Please if you are going through are not alone!!! I want to have a Spark Team/Message Board as a "online support group" for people who are faced with this issue. Also any ex-offenders would be welcome as well. I have been to jail several times ( even 2 stays in the infamous Maricopa County Jail in Arizona..and yes I was in "tent city" for a brief period). Due to health/personal issues I am looking for someone else to "start" the group...but I would be willing to help with what's needed. Please people don't be shy..come forward and introduce yourself!!!! emoticon

    If you could start the team and just keep it a little active people might respond even a year or so later. I am sure there are people out there. A team I was on long ago is still there . It was for caregivers. Once in awhile a person posts. It did lead to friendships and shared conversations. chris

    Good luck!Sorry,I don't fit the bill.However I understand where you are coming from.I worked in a locked down facility for almost 28 years.I loved working with juveniles who had run ins with the law.I was able to help a few.I was forced to retire five years ago due to health issues.Good luck with starting your group.

    This is not going well at all. The only person to respond to this was the one person who had me get up the nerve to start this blog. Stop being chickens people!!!! emoticon
