FPCA will be hosting the annual Mother & Child Retreat for a small group of approximately 10 women from the Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women and their children. This is a wonderful opportunity for these families to connect and spend quality time together.
It has been recognized that children need quality, supervised time with their mother, especially while she is incarcerated and cannot see them regularly. Children face tremendous loss and sadness over their separation, and young children often have a lot of fear about what is happening to their mother. Mothers also benefit and gain skills in interaction with their children before time for their release.
You can help by providing snacks, books, or time. Please sign up for one or more of the many volunteer opportunities. CLICK HERE.
