Thank you to those who sent us stories about your visiting experiences. This campaign is now closed and we'll no longer be accepting stories.


San Francisco Children of Incarcerated Parents Partnership (SFCIPP) is gathering stories about what visiting in jails and prisons is like for families in the Bay Area. We highly encourage the participation of youth, children, and minors as well as incarcerated parents and loved ones in this call for stories. If you are a parent or caregivers who is recording the story of a child, please identify that in the comments section of the questionnaire (linked below).

These stories will be collected in order to push for better policies regarding visiting in the Bay Area. They will be shared via publication online or in print. If you would like to share your story you can choose to remain anonymous. 

SFCIPP will compensate participants who submit stories in the form of a Visa gift card valued at no less than $50.

You can send us your story one of three ways:

The questions on the questionnaire are meant as optional prompts to help guide your storytelling. Stories should be at least one page.


When sending us your story make sure to provide the address you would like us to send your gift card to. If you are currently incarcerated and would like your gift card to be sent to a loved one, please note that in the comments section and provide their name and address.
