The Family Support Program was implemented in the Allegheny County Jail in 2009 as a key strategy of the Allegheny County Jail Collaborative's Reentry Program. The Family Support Program is based on the premise -- supported by emerging research -- that positive family and community connections provide incentives and resources that encourage and assist ex-offenders to stay out of jail. But a second, equally important goal is to prevent the negative outcomes that children experience when their parents are incarcerated. This video provides highlights from a published report on the program, which includes a description of the program, its development and its effect on the lives of inmates and their families.
