Programs and Events

Family-Focused Programs and Events

Department of Corrections facilities across the state offer many family-oriented programs and events. Positive relationships play an important role in both an inmate’s incarceration and their re-entry into the community, and family are encouraged to participate in opportunities to connect. 

Some examples of events and programs loved ones can participate in include: 

  • Enhanced Family Visiting events like game nights, Halloween trick-or-treating, holiday crafts, Father’s Day BBQs, and more! (varies by facility)
  • Yearly Powwows for Native American inmates and their families
  • Family First summer BBQ at Oregon State Penitentiary
  • Girl Scouts Beyond Bars at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility
Reach out to your incarcerated loved one or contact a facility to learn more about all of the programs and events available to families.
