From Our Experience

We understand, firsthand, the painful impacts that come along with the convictions, prison sentences and the journey of incarceration.

We also firmly believe that the convictions of faith, love and family are greater and can help you remain connected and succeed against the odds.

What Our Friends Say

“Willie and Candace Fleming are evidence that strong families can overcome the barriers of prison bars through commitment, and consistent communication. I have had a front row seat to their love for one another and their son. Our community is blessed to have Families of Conviction as a resource for building strong family units during incarceration.”
Families of Conviction is important for several reasons. One, it allows families to be connected despite one of life’s toughest adversities. Two, it provides insight on what is being experienced in the minds of all parties impacted by incarceration. Finally, through the books and programming provided by Families of Conviction and C.W. Fleming, families are able to be encouraged, supported and aware of resources. I love Families of Conviction!
