Accompanying relatives of detainees
If a loved one is sent to prison, this is also very stressful for the entire family. Because relatives of detainees often do not know how to deal with the situation and feel excluded from their environment.
For this reason, the Heilmsarmee's Listened to-project supports and accompanies the relatives of imprisoned persons. In particular, it aims to prevent the social exclusion and social decline of close relatives of prisoners.
