We strategically work to improve the quality of supports for children with incarcerated parents by using the various data and knowledge it gains to inform public policy and practice.
During the state's response to COVID-19, and the CTDOCs' temporary stop to visits at correctional facilities, CTDOC is offering each incarcerated individual 8 free phone calls a month. The free calls are uploaded automatically each month by Securus. To use the free calls, an incarcerated person would follow the same process that they would when making calls that their family/friends have paid for. The first 8 calls each month will be free during this temporary stop to visits.

Did you know?
1 in 14 U.S. children have had a parent who lives with them go to jail or prison.
Having a parent or other loved one in prison can be really hard and confusing. On the Children's Page, you will find information on prison, definitions to words you may have heard or seen, and answers to questions you might have.
