This is helpful whether you just want to know what your loved one is going through or if you need specific information, such as how often you can visit or how you can send an inmate money.

If you have been in jail you should consider providing an interview about your experience - the interview takes about an hour, but feel free to fill out as much or as little as you would like. This is a great way to help people out by providing your unique perspective on a very difficult situation.
