Securus Provides Free Calling to Connect Inmates with Loved Ones Affected by Louisiana Flooding

In continuing effort to support those of the recent tragic floods in Southern Louisiana, Securus has graciously offered to provide extra phone time to inmates of the Louisiana State Prison system. Inmates have been allotted one free call per day through early September, to stay in contact with loved ones who may have been impacted by the natural disaster. The humanitarian effort allows those who ordinarily have limited access to their families to ameliorate the anxiety and stress associated with this extraordinary situation.

Over 250,000 free calls were expected through the duration of the program, with an associated connecting fee of approximately $300,000. In addition to this contribution, Securus Technologies has pledged $50,000 in cash to the inmate welfare fund at the Louisiana Department of Corrections. The inmate welfare fund supports the education and welfare of those incarcerated, as well as drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment programs. The fund also contributes to supporting the facilities which enhance the well-being of inmates, including hobby supplies and library maintenance. Watch this video on Youtube.
