If your family is struggling, the Department of Human Services (DHS) can help connect you with programs, services, and resources you may need.

Family Empowerment Services (FES) Enhancing families' ability to provide for their children's well-being.
Services for incarcerated parents
DHS is committed to working with incarcerated parents. Just because you are behind bars doesn’t mean you lose your right to be a parent. However, it is up to you to take an active role in your child’s life, even from jail or prison.
