Unhappy What website for Graceville care package?

Could somebody please give me the website to order care packages for my son who is currently in Graceville? We missed the "winter" ordering time and he's been told that he can't get a long sleeved shirt!

I've been looking at FLinmatepackages.com but all it gives me is a downloaded mail in order form to send food.

Please help?

Thanks!

Go here: https://www.accesscatalog.com/

After creating account and signing in you will need to choose the state (Florida) then the program (DOC - Florida DOC Property Family Private Package Program) and then click on 'Go To Program'....

Then, you enter his DC number and hit enter. And, go from there....

The reason it won't let you do anything is because you can't order anything until April 27

I also cannot order property for Graceville. Can only order food. Guess it is because it is private.

No I have no way to get there and I think it would be too much on me even if I could find a way. He does not expect it he understands my health issues.

Right now they are having issues , you may need to check for visitation they had a stabbing two days ago and someone died that pod has been under total lock down and the one day the whole institution not sure if this is effects visitation or not but you may want to call before you travel that far.

Just went for the first time this weekend. Just got approved last week after lost applications and faxing them and sitting on desks for almost 3 months. Not crowded and no wait. This is first time I visited a prison so cannot compare to others. But everyone was nice and everything looked clean. It was great seeing my son since it had been since the first of this year. Bring $1 bills because the change machine went out on both days for a couple of hours each time. Spent the night in Dothan Al. It was about 10 min away. Good luck to you and your husband.

Did someone die from the stabbing? I heard about the stabbing but no death.

Been to Graceville 4 times. Not bad except one time it got crowded and ask for volunteers to leave. No one wanted to leave so they starting calling names. The other 3 times not crowded at all. Guards are respectful.

Thank you for the info regarding Dothan- I was wondering how far away the nearest place to stay was. My son was transferred to graceville today after two extended reception center stays. It looks like GTL is the phones. I had an account with them to get his calls from jail before he was sentenced and had some funds left on there when he was transferred to state prison system. Does anyone know if he can just call that number to get through to me? I had to send in a different phone number for the state facilities because they needed a paper statement (thanks mom!). Also, I can't figure out how to get money on his books. Is it still jpay? I know I can order him packages through access secure pack (again, same as when he was in jail), but how about sending funds? I still have e stamps on jpay to send him email- can he still access that?
Any assistance is appreciate, thanks!

Welcome to PTO, Browsin4287. I'm sorry you needed us, but am glad you found us.

A quick note on threads/posts - you can see the date of each post at the top left of the post itself. Your post was posted on 1/14/2019. The post immediately above yours was posted on 9/5/2015.

I'm not sure how much has changed in FL since 2015, but you may want to start your own thread in the future by using the "New Thread" button at the top left of each forum. I would move this post to a new thread, however, you quoted a post above it and that would make it look odd.

I don't have any answers for you, but hopefully someone will be along soon to give you as much information as they can.

Welcome. You've found a soft place to land.
