About Us

Our Vision

Families & Criminal Justice envisions a future in which the development of every person is fostered by healthy relationships, supportive human networks, adequate community resources, equitable social policies and just economic systems.​​

Our Mission

The mission of Families & Criminal Justice is the prevention of intergenerational crime and incarceration.

The Conceptual Basis For Our Work

The work of Families & Criminal Justice is based in Attachment Theory.  This set of concepts explains the bond between young children and their primary caregivers, and its importance in child development and future relationships.​

We also utilize a reflective, relationship-based approach to practice.  In relationship-based practice, "who you are is as important as what you do."  Relationship-based practice provides for the parent what we want the parent to provide for the child: a healthy, nurturing, responsive relationship.
