My son was there for 1 and half years. The Co were nice to us. He got along well there. Now that it is private I am not sure. We were able to hug and give him a kiss at the start and the end of the visit. You were able to hold hands, take pic in for him to see. they have lockers you can put your things in. Let me know what you like to know and I will try to let you know

What do you mean private? Is this a better place than CRC? Did he see much trouble there?

The State Of Ohio sold that prison. Now it is owened by some company. There was not that much trouble there. You will alway see some trouble. He just keep to himself. He did make some friend but only after he knew he could trust them. The key thing is to keep to yourself. Yes it is Better then CRC. Just writ him send card anthing that will keep him busy. If you can put money on his book and have him get a phone card so you or he can put money on it for phone calls.
No low top shirts. I aways wore a T-shirt. My jeans were a little lose not to big. I was all ways nice to the CO even when I get a little mad at them. You get more with sugar then salt. You will have to but a ven card to buy food when you visit. and you can e-mail to set up a visit.

They r in a dorm with alot of others with bunk bed in a cube. You will need to buy a food card which is 3.00 dollars. Can not remember how much you can put on it but I would put 25.00 to 30.00 But do not put to much on it because you may not be able to get your money back if they move him to another prison. My son ate alot when we visit. there r things in the ven machine that he dose not get. You will not be able to take any money into the visting room. So only take the money you need. you can not take a purse in to visit only your ID.

ask all the question you want. You buy the card before you go in to the visiting area. yes it will work in the ven machine. You can also buy pic before you go in. can also put money on his book before you go in. When you go in be sure to take a number and have a seat till they call your number. also be sure to know his number they will ask you for it and the number they give you when you set up the visit. The more question you ask the more I remember. If you have more question ask.

Thank you do much. This means alot. Would the visiting area make my 5th grade daughter upset? Would this be too much on her to see this in your opinion?

I have not put money on his book hru the website but have put it on his phone account thru the website it took less the 24 hr. Yes you can visit all day. I always did a all day visit twice a month.
If you do not live close to NC you may be able to go to google voice and get a free number with the zip code as Marion then your calls are just .97 cents for 15 min.

I put the case manger in thr TO .. The contact name I put my husbands name. .. the witness I had my daughter sign that.. also be sure to send a copy of you ID and a copy of a bill in your name. You will not be approved if you do not have the ID and a copy of a bill in your name. Also all the address must be the same as the ID.

O also when you mail it in you will have to adderss it to you loved one with his number on it and right under his name you must put the Case manger name and highlight the case mangers name. They do not tell you all this. That is why some r turned down. They just do not make it easy.

All ways take ex clothes and shoes just in case they say you can not wear some shirt or pants in. I take ex shirt pants and shoes for everyone that goes with me. They have told my grandson that he could not wear the shirt that he had on into the visit .. I was so glad that I took other clothes for him just to be safe.

You will need to call NC and ask them they will let you know. Or if your loved ones calls you ask him.

My son was able to call when he wanted. I had a set time for him to call because of working I think they shut the phone off at 10 or 11 not sure. The lines were not long. He call almost every day now that we have google voice. Have a Happy New Year .. It had to be happy when your loved one is not home but after this one then one more and my son will be home
