The Video Visiting Program allows families to visit with their incarcerated loved one via video, similar to Skype or FaceTime. Families can visit from Osborne’s Brooklyn or Bronx locations for approximately 45 minutes. Our family-friendly video visiting rooms are designed as living room spaces (complete with toys and books) to allow families to feel comfortable and at home while visiting with their loved one.
Video visits are not meant to replace in person visits. We believe that in-person visits are critical for building and maintaining the parent-child bond, especially for young children. Video visiting is a way for children to consistently “visit” and “see” their incarcerated parents between and in addition to visits at the facility.
