The Mothers & Spouses of Offenders 

Support Group for Women 

We exist to provide a confidential, hopeful, and non-judgemental space for women coping with the devastating experience of having a loved one enter the justice system. We serve the family of offenders, and offer experience, guidance, and support for those involved at any stage of the judicial process: pre-sentencing, incarceration, and post-incarceration.


Chaplain Rielly McLaren and Social Worker Jen Graham are the leaders of our Mothers & Spouses of Offenders Support Group for Women. This unique and rare support group reaches unseen victims of crime – the families of offenders, by providing a safe and confidential place for women to share their struggles of having an incarcerated loved one.
