Prisoner Visitation and Support - FCI Memphis

Open Opportunity

About

Prisoner Visitation and Support (PVS) is the only organization authorized by the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the Department of Defense to visit any prisoner in the Federal and Military prison systems. The primary focus is on seeing those prisoners with an acute need for human contact -- those prisoners without regular visits, those serving long sentences who are far from home, those in solitary confinement and on death row, and those who are frequently transferred from prison to prison. PVS visitors let the prisoners set the agenda for what they discuss. Common concerns are: lack of contact with family, untreated medical problems, work or educational plans upon release, current events, literature, etc.

This listing is for volunteers that are interested in visiting at FCI Memphis, a federal correctional institution serving adult male offenders in Memphis, Tennessee. 

Volunteers must complete an application, background check, and an interview prior to visiting. Volunteer visitors must be at least 21 years old. Volunteer visitors complete an orientation/training one day each month (12 days/year).
