Family Engagement

A key part of the mission of Circles of Support is to include family members and loved ones of formerly incarcerated individuals in the community events and activities that we offer.


Family orientation

Circles of Support hosts quarterly family orientations, in which family members meet their loved ones' reentry team and are invited to partner with them in the reentry process.

Our quarterly orientations include a family dinner, meeting members of the Harlem Community Justice Center, and learning about the different Circles of Support programs.



This summer, we celebrated our wonderful growing community with a family carnival. 

Our carnival was full of family activities and our volunteers and other community members also attended!
