The mission of Assisting Families of Inmates is to strengthen the families of inmates in our community and to enhance the lives of their children.
Assisting Families of Inmates works to help families preserve and strengthen positive relationships with relatives incarcerated in Virginia’s state correctional facilities. Through a continuum of direct and support services, AFOI helps families cope with incarceration and prepare for release and reunification. Last year AFOI provided over 2,500 trips and/or visits by video to many of Virginia’s correctional facilities for family members. We also provided thousands of resource referrals for housing, utilities, food, clothing and medical services. The Virginia Department of Corrections has estimated that nearly one fifth of the state’s prison population resided in the Richmond area prior to incarceration. Given that figure, approximately 5,000 families in our community are affected by the incarceration of a family member.
