CTCIP is dedicated to providing information that may be helpful to those with a loved one in a Connecticut correctional facility. Hopefully through the sharing of information and personal experiences, this website will offer support to those affected by incarceration. This resource is for parents and caregivers who are facing a prison sentence, as well as for those returning home from a term of incarceration, their children, their children's remaining caregiver, other loved ones, volunteers and staff who work with or on behalf of children with a parent incarcerated, policymakers, advocates, and researchers.
