Caregiver Council

The Caregiver Council is a monthly support group for parents or caregivers of youth affected by a parent’s incarceration.

This is a caregiver-led group meant to build community among families impacted by parental incarceration. It’s open to men and women. Every first Saturday* of the month from 3 – 4:30 pm at the Blaisdell YMCA. Share your stories, share your strength.

Free childcare is provided

Free childcare will be provided during the Caregiver Council. Kids 6 and older will have the chance to do art, music, mindfulness and more with the amazing Creative Kuponya team! Kids 5 and younger will go to YMCA daycare.
