Q & A




Why Prepare for Release?
  • All changes cause stress and this is a big change for everyone involved.
  • Everyone includes: the inmate, spouse or significant other, children, their caregivers, other friends and relatives.  Even pets are affected.
  • Preparing For Release will make everyone more relaxed.   The entire family will have a better idea what to expect.
  • An inmate's feelings may be very intense both immediately before going home and for quite a while after being home.  The joy may be powerful and exciting, but disappointment and fear may also be present.
  • It will take several weeks and maybe even months for the entire family to adjust to having the loved one home.
  • Preparing For Release provides an opportunity for self-discovery and growth for each family member.
