Contact Visits – Women’s Residential Program

Through a partnership with Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, Women’s Justice opened the first Contact Visit space within the walls of the Cook County Jail for the Women’s Residential Program participants. These visits are designed to maintain and improve family contact and are based in part on the “fifth right” of the Children of Incarcerated Parents Bill of Rights which states: “I have the right to speak with, see and touch my parent.” Women’s Justice and Bright Horizons have established a nurturing environment to promote the mother/child bond.

Prior to scheduled contact visits with their children up to age 16, Women’s Justice Women’s Residential Program participants must complete an 4 week parenting program that provides concrete tools and skills on the mechanics of parenting and participate in weekly parenting support groups. Upon completion of the parenting program, participants can receive weekly contact interaction visits with their children and continue attending parenting support groups until discharged from the program.
