Mothers and their Children (MATCH)
MATCH is a program for women who participate in the prison’s 9-week parenting program. Participation in the class allows women to have extended and more private visits with their children once every three months, in addition to normal visiting hours. An on-site studio apartment is equipped with a fully stocked kitchen, living room and toys for the mother and her child(ren) to spend quality time together for a period of three hours. MATCH provides funding for travel and hotel expenses for children who have to travel a long distance for these visits.
Restrictions: Women cannot participate if they have a history of abusing children or have major disciplinary actions against them.
Up to 70 women at any given time.
