Michigan Program Aims To Help Families With Loved Ones In Prison

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (WLNS) - Three Michigan facilities are participating in a pilot program designed to help those with family members or friends locked-up.

It's called the Michigan Family Participation program and it aims to help people navigate the prison system.

So people can make sure their loved ones medical, mental and other needs are being met.

The program is being started by Lois DeMott, who co-founded the Lansing-based Citizens for Prison Reform back in 2011.

DeMott says her son was incarcerated until about a year ago and says she had a hard time dealing with prison rules and getting information.
