Incarcerated Youth Family Support

CATEGORY Support Groups & Social Activities

Is someone in your family under 21 and in jail? Do you wish you could connect with other people who understand what you’re going through?

This support group is peer-led and judgment-free, helping you understand and make the most of the difficult situation you’re in. Break the stigma and stop feeling so alone!


  • Group support from people who understand your situation
  • Referrals to helpful services
  • Support for crisis situations
  • Education around the juvenile justice system

What is the program like?

The group meets twice a month, with occasional events and dinners. We invite anyone to come to the meeting, have coffee, and share. The goal is to break isolation and stigma so that you feel empowered in your day-to-day life!

How do I participate?

This is a walk-in group with no referral or registration needed. For more information or if you’re interested in participating please call Lynn at 845-473-2500 ext 1343.

Lynn Rogers,
I'm an activist parent and a skilled advocate having previously served several years as the Family Advocate for MHA Dutchess. I'm now the Program Coordinator for the Family Support Programs at MHA, and hold Family Development Credential (FDC) and the Family Peer Advocate Credential (FPAC). I've been an active presenter and panel member at a variety of conferences and presentations throughout the Family Support community and received the 2002 Excellence in Resiliency Award from Families Together in NYS, Inc. for outstanding work in promoting resiliency in families of children with Social, behavioral, or emotional needs. My strong belief is that parents are the experts with their children and should be empowered to determine the goals for themselves and their families.
