The Family Services Advocate Program at Compass Mark is a program that approaches the needs of children of the incarcerated from the child's perspective. The program identifies, supports and advocates for the unique needs of children with a parent in prison. By offering case management for a child as soon as possible after their parent's incarceration, the secondary trauma that a child faces when moved from home to home is reduced. Through assisting the caregiver in meeting the child's basic needs it can allow them to remain in their home.
