The Peaceful Families Prison Program

The Peaceful Families Program is our trauma informed program serving women who are incarcerated. Using many of the principles and approaches of our FPI curriculum, this program helps participants begin to process through the adverse experiences and traumatic events that are far too common for imprisoned women. Using the “River of Cruelty” model as a foundation, the Peaceful Families Program has proven to be a transformative process for many of those we have served.

Working collaboratively with the staff at the Topeka Correctional Facility, the Peaceful Families Program set out to accomplish several goals:

  1. Reduce recidivism among women who are released from Topeka Correctional Facility
  2. Improve the quality of lives of inmates who are incarcerated in the Topeka Correctional Facility
  3. Reduce the number of discipline referrals that women in the Topeka Correctional Facility receive after completing the PFP program, in comparison with the number of discipline referrals received prior to attending the PFP program.
