Department of Corrections Partners with “Service Network for Children of Inmates Project” to unite Inmate Parents with their Children

Since April 2007, the Department of Corrections has partnered with the Service Network for Children of Inmates to strengthen the bonds between inmates and their children. The Department has jointly coordinated numerous bonding visits and launched a video visitation program for parents of children residing in Miami-Dade County. The Service Network for Children of Inmates is dedicated to understanding the circumstances and needs of families with an incarcerated parent. Through these joint efforts, we are able to assist in improving the quality of life for children of incarcerated parents, their families and communities.
