The visiting hours at the Brighter Paths will be done a bit differently than most of the correctional institutions. The Brighter Paths uses their schedule on the first letter of the offenders last name. This schedule will change every four or so months.

Visits will be on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 1 pm to 3 pm. However, the day of the visit will solely be dependent on the inmate’s last name. Please note that inmates are only allowed to have three visitors per visiting appointment.

You will need to contact the Brighter Paths for the current schedule.
