Caring Connections Support Group

A FailSafe-ERA Support Group

FailSafe-ERA Caring Connections is a group counseling program for families affected by incarceration.  Individuals will learn, in a supportive and non-judgmental environment, the techniques to properly grieve the loss of their incarcerated loved ones and how to survive the incarceration process,  the most common being the shame associated with admitting that incarceration has touched their lives.  They will learn how to manage expectations and how not to become an enabler once the loved one returns home.

Friends and family members of the incarcerated deal with a myriad of issues; the most common being the shame associated with admitting that incarceration has touched their lives.  The FailSafe-ERA support group is a place where persons affected by incarceration can gather to share their experiences and insights in a safe environment, free from shame to share the myriad of emotions associated with having an incarcerated loved-one.


We offer a facilitated discussion for individuals and families affected by incarceration, to share concerns, develop and/or improve coping skills, and to manage stressors created by incarceration.  The family members are provided opportunities to share insights and challenges associated with having an incarcerated or recently released family member through our family support group.   


The FailSafe-ERA Support Group meets the third Saturday of the month at from 10:00am - 11:30am.


 4701 Market Street, Suite H, Fredericksburg, VA 22408   Phone: 540-479-3021


We assist returning citizens and families affected by incarceration, by providing the resources and tools to help these families rebuild, succeed and thrive during their transition back into our communities.
