“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.” Matthew 25:35-36.
Prison Families Anonymous welcomes anyone who now has, or ever had, a loved one involved in the juvenile or criminal justice system. At meetings, we share our experience, strength and hope. Here we offer information and assistance in navigating the criminal justice system. We encourage members to exchange phone numbers and when possible to carpool to upstate prisons.
Prison Families Anonymous (PFA)
Life becomes more difficult and stressful for family and friends when a loved one becomes incarcerated. Relationships and responsibilities can become strained and the dynamics within the family often change dramatically. The PFA Support Group provides a safe, non-judgmental place where those in similar situations can connect with each other. It provides compassion, support and information to family members during their very difficult times.
The Prison Families Anonymous Support Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Community Presbyterian Church at 1843 Deer Park Avenue in Deer Park, NY. (located on the northeast corner of Deer Park and Lake Ave.) The parking lot entrance is on Lake Avenue (use rear door closest to parking lot).
