Virtual Visitation Program 

The Virtual Visitation Program (VVP) is a behavior-based program focused on strengthening community supports to improve quality of life during and after incarceration. The program supplements the in-person visitation opportunities, offering incarcerated individuals and their family members and/or friends a 20 minute virtual visit using an online platform (e.g., Zoom, Webex, Skype) to encourage communication and support. Participants will be expected to complete a survey following the visit to help measure effectiveness of the program. 

All visits must be scheduled ahead of time, using this web form.
