Today we have Cecilia Conley @wifeofalifer interviewing Jolyn Armstrong, founder of La FOTA Project - Families Of The Accused.
Jolyn’s son went from being a respected soldier in the military to an accused felon overnight. Their business, their relationships, and nearly every other aspect of their lives suffered through the experience of supporting her son through his trial and ultimate conviction and prison sentence.
It wasn’t until going through this experience themselves that they discovered the intense trauma that is inflicted on the families of people who have been incarcerated or have been accused of a crime, how little is known about it, and how much need there is for support for these families. That’s why they took their training and skills in coaching and launched The FOTA Project (Families Of The Accused).
FOTA’s mission is to provide emotional counseling, support, and guidance for the families of people who have been incarcerated or accused of a crime. Jolyn works one-on-one with family members of the accused, helping them work through the grieving process and deal with the trauma, fear, and shame involved with having a family member accused of a crime.
Jolyn's techniques are very helpful and she has offered a special promotion to our listeners, please go to https:/thefotaproject.org/lifeofalifer to learn more.
