About

Prisoner Visitation and Support seeks to meet the needs of prisoners who rarely, if ever, receive outside visits. PVS visitors focus on seeing those prisoners with an acute need for human contact: those serving long sentences or those frequently transferred.

One prisoner stated "I feel normal when I talk to my PVS visitor. I feel I could become part of the community again."

This position requires regular monthly visitation and a brief written report of the visit. Volunteer must be a good listener who can reach out to prisoners in a spirit of mutual respect, trust and acceptance.

Screening, training and ongoing support is provided by Prisoner Visitation and Support, Philadelphia.
