Friends and Family of Incarcerated Persons, Inc. d/b/a FFIP, is an 18-year old non-profit organization that has been created in direct response to the growing number of people incarcerated in the United States. FFIP offers services to adults and children who have been affected by having a loved one in the prison system and provides an opportunity to obtain and share information in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Services include support group meetings, email, phone calls, website containing resources and information, Facebook, workshops, and holiday events. FFIPs’ goals are to continue helping people across the U.S. by creating FFIP chapters, creating permanent space for meetings, events, support and to provide information, and to provide transportation so families can visit their loved ones in prison.

There are over two million people in the U.S.that are incarcerated, however there over four million more that are sitting in jails waiting to be sentenced or on parole or probation. That’s over six million people affected by mass incarceration. When someone is incarcerated it affects much more than that one person, it also affects their families and their community. Whether someone is sentenced to six weeks or six years or longer, their family is serving the sentence with them; the only difference is that they’re serving it on the outside. Some families feel shame and suffer from depression. People may stop talking to them or may not let their children play with their children. Nobody should feel alone, and nobody should have to serve the hidden sentence alone.
