Correctional Facilities

We are filling the gap

Juvenile and Adult Correctional Facilities

It is estimated that 98% of inmates have suffered emotional or physical abuse at the hands of a family member or someone close to them. Most correctional facilities, if any, do not provide any kind of training to break the cycle of abuse.

Performances

Become an ambassador for safer kids and families.

The first step is empathy

Collaborative Programs

Fix the Hurt has presented eight programs in Arizona Prisons in the past year. Our case studies reveal that grown men weep when recognizing their part in destroying someone else’s life. Inmates have offered to do a fund raising program to fund the video recording of our program to offer to “every yard in the prison”.

No one is ever too far gone

Breaking the Cycle

Our programs always end with an evaluation and a question and answer period. The results speak for themselves. Often the inmates tell us when they come in they need to finish by a certain time. Always, the discussions go much longer, usually with those same inmates asking the questions.

Community Impact

J. Westerholm,

“I just wanted to thank you again for coming to San Carlos Unit and giving your performance of Control.Assault.Delete to the inmates here. Your powerful message was so well received. The inmates have been talking about it for days and have asked me to express their gratitude.

They want to thank you for your courage and for taking the time to deliver your message, also for listening to their stories and answering their questions. Many of them have expressed that your ability to survive such a tragedy has given them hope for overcoming the obstacles of incarceration as well as for dealing with the dysfunctional and violent relationships in their own lives.

I look forward to inviting you back for another performance in the near future should you be available. Thank you again for giving of your time and of yourself to reach out to the inmates of San Carlos Unit. ”
