Family Connection is a 501(c) 3 operating in Sioux Falls. Family Connection operates a service called The Hospitality Houses and a program called Children’s Connection. This combination of programming assists us in meeting our mission providing “Hope for families that must be apart.”
The Hospitality Houses provide shelter for families traveling to Sioux Falls to visit an incarcerated loved one. This service allows families, with limited incomes, to continue the healing process with the incarcerated family member.
Children’s Connection, a United Way Agency, works with the Sioux Falls School District to provide group counseling services to children with an incarcerated family member. Children with a parent in prison are more likely to be incarcerated themselves. Family Connection, through the Children’s Connection program, is working to break this cycle.
