The work we do to support youth and families on the outside of correctional facilities is fortified by the work parents and family members accomplish when they’re on the inside.
Since 2017, eight ODRC institutions have implemented the cognitive behavioral program Creating Lasting Family Connections (CLFC). Through this program, incarcerated parents have shown statistically significant growth in communication, conflict resolution, intrapersonal skills, emotional awareness, emotional expression, interpersonal skills, relationship management, and relationship satisfaction.
Our ultimate goal is to implement CLFC in new facilities across multiple regions to make a statewide impact. This work prepares individuals with justice involvement for reunification with their families and equips them to continue this work in communities on the outside where CLFC has also been implemented.
