Video Visitation Service

VISIT FROM THE COMFORT OF HOME

 

Legacy’s Friends & Family Video Visitation Service allows you to visit your incarcerated loved one via Internet video conferencing from the comfort of your home, or from anywhere you have access to a high speed Internet connection. 

 

Video visitation allows you to have a face-to-face visitation experience with your loved one. This helps to maintain a positive relationship in your loved one’s life which often contributes to their success reintegrating into society after their release. Each of Legacy’s communication services is backed by our 24-hour live and online customer support should you need assistance.
