INCREDIBLE CREDIBLE MESSENGERS

We offer pathways to healing for incarcerated individuals and their families by providing peer support and addressing trauma.

Incredible Credible Messengers is a nonprofit organization that seeks to help returning citizens and their families by employing methods of Trauma-Informed Practices related to incarceration.

 We understand that unaddressed trauma is one of the main causes of recidivism. Based on our personal experience, we realize that trauma is a major contributor to negative thoughts, behaviors, and patterns. Addressing the trauma of incarceration before release ensures a smoother reintegration process.
