What is Family Friendly Visiting?

 • Developed a more child-friendly lobby including children furniture, artwork, and children books

• Child-friendly visiting hours which are different than the normal visiting hours

• Allows for visitation of multiple children at once

• Books on each side of the glass for parents to read to the child to help promote literacy and positive interactions

• Inmates must participate in parent education and be in good standing and free of violations

• All communication is child focused

• Must participate in parenting education and complete an assignment to reflect on the visit
