After facing the life-altering challenge of supporting a family member through a serious criminal accusation, Jolyn saw how little support there is for families of the accused. Right now, 2.2 million people are incarcerated in the United States alone and 6.5 million adults have an immediate family member currently incarcerated in jail or prison.
With the horrific stigma that the families of those incarcerated people face, Jolyn couldn’t ignore the need for a support system. So Jolyn devoted her talents as a compassionate leader and coach to help those who are facing the same horror she faced.
With that, the FOTA project was born. Nobody else should have to face this alone.
