Family Support and Assistance

Our goal at LBF is to support exonerees in all aspects of their transition back into the life that they desire. The separation of family during incarceration can create emotional and financial difficulties amongst other things. Our Family Support and Assistance program goes beyond our Individual and Family Counseling. We will evaluate participant’s eligibility for federal benefits, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Medicaid, Social Security Insurance and Children’s Health Insurance as well as other federal benefits they may be eligible for.

Our mission is to create opportunities for the exonerated and give them a fair chance at true freedom and success after they so wrongfully had it taken from them. Exonerees who finish our program will obtain sustainable jobs, create community, foster healthy social relationships and gain the skills necessary to fulfill their dreams."
