Each full van must have a minimum of eight (8) people and a maximum of twelve (12) to receive services. A short distance is considered less than two (2) hours. A long distance trip is over two (2) hours. Some facilities may require a full van of twelve (12) and may require an overnight stay at a local hotel due to transit times and distance. If anyone is looking to fill up a van, please visit our Community Forum. The Community Forum will allow you to communicate with other loved ones of the incarcerated who may be looking to visit the same facility.
The COVID-19 Tracker has been updated to include the phase in the Roadmap to Reopening which each institution is in, current COVID-19 testing data, confirmed and resolved cases as well as vaccination rates.
