iConnect is a Foreverfamily fundraising campaign to support Family Visitation trips. Thousands of children in Georgia do not have the transportation or resources to visit a mother in prison. At Foreverfamily, we want to keep the family bond strong by providing regular opportunities for these children to spend quality time with their parents.
We hope to partner with the faith-based communities of Atlanta in order to serve the children of this city by providing monthly transportation – every 2nd Saturday – to Georgia’s women’s prisons.
Due to COVID-19 prisons are temporarily closed to in-person visitation. In light of this change, we are using other means to strengthen the bond between children and their incarcerated parents such as letter writing, phone calls, and emails via Jpay. While iConnect is specifically designed to support in-person visitation, we want to keep it viable because we know the number of families requested transportation will increase once we have moved beyond the pandemic.
In-person visitation is vital to maintaining and strengthening the bonds between our children, families, and parents. We look forward to resuming the in-person family visitation as soon as it is safe.
We are grateful for our church/faith-based support system that has supported our children and families in the past, and we look forward to working with you again soon!!!
Foreverfamily provides children and caregivers who participate in our Family Visitation program with transportation, meals, and van-ride activities. We currently make trips every month to:
- Lee-Arrendale Correctional, Alto, GA
- Pulaski County Correctional, Hawkinsville, GA
- Emanuel Women’s Facility, Swainsboro, GA
- Whitworth Women’s Facility, Hartwell, GA
The motto of iConnect is “faithfully connecting children with their incarcerated parents.” In order to continue successfully in this mission, we need your help in several areas:
- Volunteer support
- Vans and van-drivers
Please contact us today at (404) 223-1200 if you would like us to contact your house of worship with more information about how to support the children of Foreverfamily.
