I am a social worker who has to check in with parents often to help them get in touch with their kids, and they are very thankful that I have Securus on my side. There are a lot of people who are out there hoping that they can check in with their kids, and they are all working with me through Securus. The idea behind Securus that they are much more secure than any other company. They have the video calling feature that lets me put the kids on the tablet so they can talk to their parents about what is going on.
The first thing that these parents realize is that they can really get a sense of how their kids are doing, and they can speak to their kids about things that matter most to them. These can be very good conversations, and sometimes we even do them over homework. No one can listen in, and these are very private moments that I want the parents to have with their kids. This is the only way to help these parents until they get out of jail, and it helps the kids have a relationship with their parents in the meantime.
The best thing that happened to these kids was the fact that they could talk to their parents on Securus. I have set up a lot of these calls in the past, and I think I will keep doing it because it works so well. There are just too many things that these parents are missing out on, and I want them to be able to have something to hold on to. It is very easy to do these calls, and we can get in touch with any kind of parent in any jail when we use Securus.
