Want to start a group in your area?

Many people and organizations tell us they would like to start a group as there is not one close enough to them so CFCN created A Guide to Setting up a Family Support Group. It offers answers to all your questions with tips and ideas to help you begin and lead a group.

Just want something for yourself?

Our Coping Over Time guide offers information from family members to family members on ideas, suggestions, and advice on how to cope with having a person in your family involved in crime.
