At Families for Justice as Healing we organize formerly incarcerated women to join the movement toward creating community wellness alternatives to incarceration that heals and rebuilds families and communities.  Our membership advocates for community wellness, public health alternatives to the current U.S. drug policies and legislation that focus on criminalization, the war on drugs and mass incarceration. If we are serious about eradicating drug related illness, crime and violence we must commit to the evidence based solutions that address poverty, addiction and trauma.

Our staff is small and in need of funding. We are driven by the fight for basic human rights denied to the women and children we stand for.  Our mission is huge but we know for sure that it’s ordinary people that create extraordinary change. Help us by joining our membership and/or making a donation.
