On March 20, 2018, Idaho State Correctional Center held a special visitation night for family/friends of offenders who are preparing for release with the coordination of Correctional Case Managers Zac Godsill, Annie Galloway, Gladymar Rodriguez, Juan Lemus, Patricia Simpson, and Audra Williams.

This event included a fun night with an offender lead acoustic guitar performance, taco soup, cupcake decorating, popcorn, a competitive trivia game, 1 free picture for the offender and their special visitors, and a word of encouragement from Warden Christensen. 

The focus is to bring family/friends support, open communication, and prosocial fun prior to offender release to the community. 

The purpose is to release the offender to quality and sustainable community support that can be fostered prior to release.
