Project: Restore FIBI is there for families through all stages of the Justice process:
Project: Restore FIBI provides services to facilitate the restoration of families impacted by incarceration.
The goal of Project: Restore FIBI is to strengthen the family unit and through those relationships, and increased connectedness, mitigate the negative effects of incarceration. This ‘family-focused, family-first’ approach enables solutions and services that address both direct and indirect interactions with the criminal justice system and interrupt personal, generational, and intergenerational cycles of incarceration and its inevitable impact.
We believe in the undeniable power of family and know that a family-focused approach results in effective and lasting change. Not only that, we strongly believe that every person has a purpose and the potential for greatness. Their own – or a family member’s – mistakes should never be the deciding, or denying, factor for who they can aspire to be and what they can achieve.
Stability sets the stage to rebuild a strong foundation for families impacted by incarceration. Keeping them INTACT and THRIVING is our goal. Making a lasting impact in our communities, beginning in the home, is our firm and uncompromising commitment! Helping families and children overcome their obstacles, through unconditional support and opportunity, is our driving force. We are motivated to see all families impacted by incarceration restored, flourishing, and fulfilling their fullest potential.
If there is anything worth fighting for…IT IS ALWAYS FAMILY…because strong families are the foundation of our communities!
