Resources for the Justice-Impacted, by the Justice-Impacted.

We understand, and we’re here to help.

You may be up at 2 AM, facing the prospect of incarceration, searching for answers to (what should be) simple questions. Maybe your loved one is struggling to navigate the American prison system. This website was built and is maintained by formerly incarcerated individuals to serve as a resource for white collar justice-impacted people, their families, and friends to answer the questions that kept us and our loved ones up at night.

Unlike other sites that share information on these topics, this site is published simply as an informational resource: we are not prison consultants and our posts are offered with no profit motive. We publish this site simply to help those on this journey, whether you’re looking for information on pre-sentencing, life at a minimum-security prison, re-entry, or anything else related to paying the price for your actions and returning to a productive and pro-social life.

We hope that by sharing our stories and insights, we can help you handle with the challenges and seize the opportunities that lie ahead.
