We have set up an entire nonprofit around helping people who are in prison, but we have been in need of a system that helps us reach out o prisoners who are not near us. It is nice to be on the Securus app, and I actually put it on every single device that we own. It was much easier for us to see the people we were working with, and it helped us to put a personal touch on the services that we provided. That meant that we were talking to people who could see that there was a live person who cared.
We are all about caring, and we want to show the prisoners that they have someone who can help them. We want to be sure that all the people that we work with feel cared for, and we want them to know that they have a place to go when they get out. Released prisoners who are not able to get any help do not do well, and that is why we have set up our nonprofit to help these people. We want to be right there when they get out, but they have to know our faces first.
The video calls that we do at Securus [see their BBB page] are very helpful in that they help us get to know everyone we work with. We can go get them when they get out, and we can teach them a lot of things about the way that they can manage their lives once they are out. We want people to feel like they can function once they get out, and we want these people to know that there is a place to go until they get back on their feet. The only way to do that is to call in to them with Securus.
