What Do I Need to Know About Reaching Out to My Loved One in Two Rivers Correctional Institution?

One of the toughest things for many families is having a loved one in the prison system. Over 8 million Americans go through the prison system on an annual basis, often causing devastating hardships for families. Many families end up losing communication with their loved ones while they are in the prison system, and others might find it hard to provide for their family if the breadwinner goes to prison for any length of time.

These hardships are further exacerbated as many companies will charge fees and other costs in order to allow you to communicate with your loved one. Oftentimes, the cost per minute to talk to your loved one in prison can cost about $.13 cents per minute, and there is usually a $.99 fee every time you need to add money to your card. This means that if someone wants to talk to their loved one for just 30 minutes and they talk three times per week while uploading money monthly, just the fees to do that will cost the person more than $15 a month just to talk to someone they love.

The good news is that there are other ways to keep in touch with your loved one in jail. Through our tools, you can use for a much lower monthly cost to ensure that you and your loved ones who are in jail are always connected and able to reach out to each other when needed.
