I think it depends on if your loved one is on closed aid or not..for example my husband was on closed aid for about 2 years and he got his points droped and last November is when we found out that we can start having family visits tell your love on to ask his counselor he will know

I think he did but you are gona get the rest of the packet and on the forms they ask if you and your children will visit and you fill that out and when you go you need to take original birth certificate and marriage license and idk if you hubby knows but the paper he sent to his counsler make sure his counselor sends that to priolo because we had a mix up with that! When you receive the packet everything will be more clear

Hello Ladies,
My husband and I are getting things submitted for our first family visit at PVSP. I know I could wait for the paper work but am anxious to get info. So here are a few of my questions haha
1. what type of clothing Can we bring? Jeans, underwire bra, lingerie etc?
2. Can we go outside?
3. Is there a CD player or DVD player
