What to expect when your loved one comes home: On Tuesday night, we welcome two women who will speak from their experience as wives of men who got out of prison. Call in to hear what worked to smooth the transition, what didn’t work, and what they wish they had been told before their husbands were back home. Whether you are welcoming home a boyfriend, wife, son, or sibling, our speakers will have good stories and concrete advice for you!

Carolyn and her husband, Paul.

Having a loved one return home from prison is one of the best moments anyone can experience. A returning citizen has proven to the parole board that he or she has rehabilitated and is ready to go back to his or her community. For some, the idea of freedom and heading home can be overwhelming. This person has worked hard to get to this moment, but how can family or loved ones prepare to best support them? 


Often, the biggest external struggles returning citizens face is securing housing, finding work, maintaining finances, and adjusting to the outside world. But many of their struggles are internal, like navigating relationships and communicating effectively. As their support system, it can be difficult to understand what he or she is going through in this time of transition. On our next CARESCall, we will welcome some incredible and resilient people to share their experiences on having their loved ones come home. Learn how you can best anticipate and prepare for your loved ones needs.

As always, there will be time for our listeners to ask questions. Join us this Tuesday for another great call!
